Can someone please tell me what KB means - is it a kilobyte? and is it smaller than a MB and if so is 7.15kb bigger than 294kb? Thanks.

Kb = Kilobyte. 1 Kb is 1/1000th of a Mb (Mega byte). So no, a Kb is definitley smaller than a Mb.

7.15Kb is smaller than 249Kb.

7.15 anythings is smaller than 249 of the same measurement?
