#### 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.

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.

32 ÷ 8 = 4

4 × 5 = 20 miles

It looks easy, doesn't it?
