Here, we are going to see the python program to convert kilometers to miles. Let’s understand kilometers and miles first.


The kilometer is a unit of length in the metric system. It is equivalent to 1000 meters.


Mile is also the unit of length. It is equal to 1760 yards.

Conversion formula:

1 kilometer is equal to 0.62137 miles.

  1. Miles = kilometer * 0.62137
  2. Kilometer = Miles / 0.62137

See this example:

  1. # Collect input from the user
  2. kilometers = float(input(‘How many kilometers?: ‘))
  3. # conversion factor
  4. conv_fac = 0.621371
  5. # calculate miles
  6. miles = kilometers * conv_fac
  7. print(‘%0.3f kilometers is equal to %0.3f miles’ %(kilometers,miles))
