In this article, we will discuss how to convert kilometers to miles but before that, lets define kilometers and miles. A mile is a unit of linear measure equal to 1,760 yards and is abbreviated as mi. While a kilometer is a metric unit of length equal to 1000 meters and is abbreviated as km.

### Formula to convert kilometers to miles.

To convert km to mi we first need to know that a mile is longer than a km and their relation is that;

1 km is equal to 0.6214 mi.

Therefore, to convert km to mi, we multiply the km value by 0.6214.

** Length in mi = Length in km x 0.6214**

**Example 1:**

Convert 1000 kilometers to mi.

**= 1000 x 0.6214**

**= 621.4 miles.**

**Example 2:**

The Nile River flows over 6,600 kilometers until emptying into the Mediterranean Sea. How long is river Nile in miles.

**= 6,600 x 0.6214**

**Therefore, River Nile is 4101.24 miles** **long.**

**Example 3.**

If the earth is 147km from the sun. Calculate the distance earth’s average distance to the sun in miles.

**= 147 x 0.6214**

**= 91.3 miles.**

**Example 4:**
