Using the equation  1 GB  =  1000 MB ,  we get.....

 

1 GB  =  1000 MB

                                     Multiply both sides of the equation by  6.8

6.8 GB  =  6800 MB

 

How many  1.43  MB  fit into  6800 MB  ?

 

6800 MB / 1.43 MB  ≈  4755.245

 

He won't be able to fit  4756  books on the tablet.

 

He can fit  4755  books on the tablet at most.

Well...I wanted to be consistent with the definitions recommended here  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte

 

I just really hope that in the future we can all agree on the same prefixes to mean the same things.
