Worksheet Overview

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.


5 miles = 8 kilometres

1 mile = 8 ÷ 5 = 16 ÷ 10 = 1.6 km


A mile is longer than a kilometre.


To convert miles to kilometres ÷ 5 and × 8



Convert 30 miles to kilometres.



30 ÷ 5 = 6

6 × 8 = 48 kilometres
