## How to convert miles to kilometers?

To convert from miles to kilometers, we need to multiply the number of miles by 1.609344. This means that we can form the following formula:

#### Example 1:

How many kilometers are equal to 4 miles?

To find the number of kilometers, we have to multiply the number of miles by 1.609344. Therefore, we have:

d(km) =4×1.609344

d(km) = 6.437376 km

#### Example 2:

Determine the number of kilometers that are equal to 7 miles.

If we multiply the miles by 1.609344, we have:

d(km) = 7×1.609344

d(km) = 11.265408 km

#### Example 3:

How many kilometers are equal to 11.5 miles?

By multiplying the number of miles by 1.609344, we have:

d(km) = 11.5×1.609344

d(km) = 18.507456 km
