Hi aishsimplesweet,

Similar option:
Printing with 4 decimal places.

Code:
du | awk '{$1=sprintf("%4.4f",$1/1024)"MB";print}'

or

ls -l | awk '{$5=sprintf("%4.4f",$5/1024)"MB";print}'

Hope it helps

To convert bytes to human readable value:

Code:
awk ' BEGIN { split("bytes,KB,MB,GB,TB,PB,EB,ZB,YB",SZ,",") } { p=1;for(i=0;$1/p>1024;i++) p*=1024; printf "%4.4f %s\n", $1/p, SZ[i+1]}'
