3016 MB * 10^6 bytes/MB * 1 GB/10^9 bytes =
just like you would expect. And
3016 MB * 10^6 bytes/MB * 1 GiB/2^30 bytes =

True so far.

Except, that's totally bogus. Besides the fact that you obviously meant
1024, not 3072...
If the quotient is in GiB, and the dividend is in MB.
MB/? = GiB
MB/GiB = ?
So how many MB are there in a GiB, really?
1 GiB * 2^30 bytes/GiB * 1 MB/10^6 bytes = 1073.7 MB
NOT 1024 MB.
