HOW many meters in a mile |

*- Here is a comparison between miles and some other distance sizes :*

**HOW many meters in a mile**1 mil = 1.609,344 m

1 mile = 1.609344 km

1 mile = 1.760 yards

1 mile = 5,280 feet

From the above comparison we can already know that one mile equals 1, 609 km. Keep in mind that the size of 1 mile distance on land is different from the size of the unit miles in the sea or the so-called Nautical Mile (1 nautical mile = 1.852 km).

To complement the above material, here are some examples of questions to deepen the understanding of the material that has been described:

Sample Problem :

- An inter-city bus has traveled 30 miles. If expressed in kilometers, what is the distance traveled by the bus:

Known 1 mile = 1.609 km, then:

30 miles = 30 x 1,609 km

30 miles = 48.27 km

- A river is known to have a length of 2.5 miles. If stated in meters, what is the length of the river?

Known 1 mile = 1.609 km, then:

2.5 miles = 2.5 x 1,609 km

30 miles = 4,0225 km

Because 1 km = 1000 m, then:

4,0225 km = 4,0225 x 1000 = 4022.5 m

So the length of the river is 4022.5 meters.

Hopefully after listening to the discussion and also the example of the above problem now you can know more about the unit of miles so that when anyone asks a mile the same as how many kilometers? you can easily answer it without the need for confusion again.
