Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Miles and kilometres are used to measure distances.

 

An old Roman mile was 1000 paces, each of 2 steps.

A kilometre is a more modern metric measurement, equivalent to 1000 metres.

 

8 kilometres = 5 miles

1 kilometre = 5 ÷ 8 = 0.625 miles

 

A kilometre is shorter than a mile.

 

To convert kilometres to miles

÷ 8 and × 5.

 

 

Example

Convert 32 kilometres to miles.
