## What is the Formula to convert Miles to Kilometers?

The formula to convert given length from Miles to Kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Miles)} × 1.609344

Substitute the given value of length in miles, i.e., Length_{(Miles)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the length in kilometers, i.e., Length_{(Kilometers)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a luxury sports car can travel 300 miles on a full tank of gas.

Convert this distance from miles to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in miles is:

Length_{(Miles)} = 300

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from miles to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Miles)} × 1.609344

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Miles)} = 300** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 300 × 1.609344

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 482.8032

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **300 mi** is equal to **482.8032 km**.

The length is **482.8032 km**, in kilometers.

### Consider that a private jet can fly 1,500 miles without refueling.

Convert this range from miles to Kilometers.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in miles is:

Length_{(Miles)} = 1500

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from miles to kilometers is:

Length_{(Kilometers)} = Length_{(Miles)} × 1.609344

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Miles)} = 1500** in the above formula.

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 1500 × 1.609344

Length_{(Kilometers)} = 2414.016

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **1500 mi** is equal to **2414.016 km**.

The length is **2414.016 km**, in kilometers.
