A kilometer is a metric system unit mainly used to express distance in most of the world; notable exceptions are the United States and the United Kingdom, where the mile is the unit used. Even though kilometers and miles are used for measuring the same unit (distance), the value differs.

### What is a Mile?

The **mile**, sometimes the international mile or the statute mile to distinguish it from other miles, is a British imperial unit and the United States customary unit of distance.

The unit of length of a mile is equal to 5,280 feet or 1,760 yards (1,609 meters), used in the United States and other English-speaking countries.

The statute mile was standardized between the British Commonwealth and the United States by an international agreement in 1959, and it was formally redefined to SI units as precisely 1,609.344 meters.

### How to Convert Kilometer to Miles?

To convert Kilometer to Miles, simply multiply the Kilometer value by 0.621371.

The formula used to calculate Kilometer to Miles -

**d**_{(km)} = **d**_{(mi)} * 0.621371

The distance *d* in Miles (mi) is equal to the distance *d* in Kilometers (km) multiplied by 0.621371.

### How many Miles in a Kilometer

In simple terms, 1 km is equal to 0.621371 mi.

The formula used is 1*0.621371 = 0.621371(mi)

### How many Kilometers in a Mile

1 Mile is equal to 1.609344497893 Kilometers. So we can also say that there are 1.609344497893 Kilometers in a Mile.
