Is there a simple way to convert Kilometers to Miles in my head?

We have two methods to get a close value. The actual formula is mi = km * 0.62137119 but our methods are easier to do in your head.

The first method is to multiply the kilometres value by 0.6.

The second, more accurate method, is to multiply the kilometers value by 2 and then divide by 3.

Worked Example: 1 kilometer x 0.6 = 0.6 miles

Second method: 1 kilometer * 2 = 2.0, 2 / 3 = 0.666667 miles

The actual answer is 0.62137119 miles, so these methods are close enough for many purposes

How do I use the Fibonacci sequence to convert from Kilometers to Miles?

The Fibonacci sequence is a mathematical sequence in which each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. It begins with two 1s as such: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, and so on. The difference between two adjacent numbers in the sequence provides a good estimation of the relationship between miles and kilometers and this becomes a better estimate as the sequence progresses.

To use this to estimate the conversion of Kilometers to Miles, choose a number in the sequence such as 21 for kilometers. The preceding value in the sequence is the approximate equivelent in miles, 13.

This works as the closed-form factor of the sequence is 1.61803 which is very close to the conversion factor of Miles to Kilometers which is 1.60934.
