What are the effects on megapixels when cropping a full frame image to match a crop sensor image?

I’m getting dizzy trying to figure this out. Seems like I should be able to.

My specific scenario

Camera A is 18mp with 1.6 crop factor

Camera B is 30mp full frame sensor

Solely considering megapixels (I realize more things to consider), which image would have more megapixels and would it matter much?

Camera A with 600mm lens

Camera B with 800mm lens

Also want to understand how that comparison should be made

TIA
