One mile is 1.6 kilometers. There are many more on this site also. You can figure out the rest by multiplying, or go to the site and get 1 through 30 kilometers converted to miles. -Moab EDIT: I can't get the link to work right. I just went to google and type in "km to miles conversion." It came up as the second or third choice.

That means 1 mile is approximately 1.6 km. Obviously, if you're going the other way, from kilometres to miles, just divide the kilometres by 1.6 to get the miles. I'll let you do the maths from there. __________________ Want to ride across Australia with me in 2018? Click the image below.

Multiply km by .62 or .6214 to get miles. 10 km = 6.2 miles 100 km = 62.14 miles etc.

It can convert work, pressure, length, weight, density, temperature, speed, angle, and a lot more! I love it!

SO: miles > km: multiply by 8 then divide by 5. km>miles: multiply by 5 then divide by 8. Dead easy with practice. I do it all the time when I'm driving in Europe. And I am famously innumerate.
