## Example Conversions of Mile to Other Units

The mile can be converted to other units of length by using different factors and formulas. Here are some examples of conversion for different types of units:

- To convert a mile to feet, multiply by 5,280:

1 mi x 5,280 = 5,280 ft

- To convert a mile to yards, multiply by 1,760:

1 mi x 1,760 = 1,760 yd

- To convert a mile to meters, multiply by 1,609.344:

1 mi x 1,609.344 = 1,609.344 m

- To convert a mile to kilometers, multiply by 1.609344:

1 mi x 1.609344 = 1.609344 km

- To convert a mile to nautical miles, divide by 1.150779:

1 mi / 1.150779 = 0.868976 nmi

- To convert a mile to geographical miles, divide by 0.869:

1 mi / 0.869 = 1.151 mi

- To convert a foot to miles, divide by 5,280:

1 ft / 5,280 = 0.000189 mi

- To convert a yard to miles, divide by 1,760:

1 yd / 1,760 = 0.000568 mi

- To convert a meter to miles, divide by 1,609.344:

1 m / 1,609.344 = 0.000621 mi

- To convert a kilometer to miles, divide by 1.609344:

1 km / 1.609344 = 0.621371 mi

- To convert a nautical mile to miles, multiply by 1.150779:

1 nmi x 1.150779 = 1.150779 mi

- To convert a geographical mile to miles, multiply by 0.869:

1 mi x 0.869 = 0.869 mi
