4.96 mile

Work Step by Step

8 km to mile We’re changing from a metric length unit to a U.S. length unit. In the “Metric to U.S. Units” side of the table, you see that 1 kilometer = 0.62 mile. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 km)/(0.62 mile) Or(0.62 mile)/(1 km). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out kilometers (that is, kilometers is in the denominator). 8 km * (0.62 mile)/(1 km) = 4.96 mile = 4.9 mile
