If Jacob ran 24 kilometers, how many miles did Jacob run?
About 15 miles
The best way to convert from km to miles is to:
Take your kilometer value and half it,then take a quarter of your half and add it to your half- now you have it in miles
So in this case:1. Half of 24 is 12
2. A quarter of 12 is 3.
So 24km equals 15 miles (more or less- it's about 14.9 miles).
If you want to convert from miles to km, my personal method, which I suggest to use, is simply to add 60% of your value in miles to itself to get it to km.
In this case:
Which corresponds perfectly.
