# You are driving in a foreign country, and you see a sign showing a speed limit of 60 km/h. What is that speed in miles per hour?

Approximately $37$ miles per hour

#### Explanation:

The conversion of kilometers to miles per hour is:

$1$ kilometer per hour = $0.621371$ miles per hour

So now we're going to multiply $0.621371$ by $60$ because the sign is not just 1 km/h, but 60 km/h.

$60 \times 0.621371 = 37.28226$ $\text{mph}$
or approximately $37$ miles per hour.
