#### Examples of converting units of length to another unit

The basic unit for the length in SI system is the meter. For example, converting yards to feets is inherently easy for many at their own end without a calculator. However, converting meters to inches or miles, for example, can be more challenging. Below are some of the most common formulas for converting units of length to another unit.

##### Miles to kilometers

One mile is exactly 1.609 kilometers. One kilometer is 0.621 miles.

You can convert miles to kilometers with formula: kilometers = miles x 1,609

1 mi = 1 x 1.609 = 1.609 km
2 mi = 2 x 1.609 = 3.22 km
5 mi = 5 x 1.609 = 8.05 km
157 mi = 157 x 1.609 = 252.67 km

##### Kilometers to miles

You can convert kilometers to miles with formula: miles = kilometers x 0,621

1 km = 1 x 0.621 = 0.621 mi
2 km = 2 x 0.621 = 1.243 mi
5 km = 5 x 0.621 = 3.107 mi
157 km = 157 x 0.621 = 97.555 mi

##### Inches to meters

You can convert inches to meters with formula: meters = inches x 0.0254

1 in = 1 x 0.0254 = 0.0254 m
2 in = 2 x 0.0254 = 0.051 m
5 in = 5 x 0.0254 = 0.127 m
157 in = 1 x 0.0254 = 3.988 m

##### Meters to inches

You can convert meters to inches with formula: inches = meters x 39,37

1 m = 1 x 39.37 = 39.37 in
2 m = 2 x 39.37 = 78.74 in
5 m = 5 x 39.37 = 196.85 in
157 m = 157 x 39.37 = 6181.1 in
