# Python Program to Convert Miles to Kilometers and vice versa

In this example, we will write a simple program to convert units of measurement from miles to kilometers and vice versa in Python. The conversion formula plays an important role in writing the program. Let us see how the formula looks:-

To Convert Miles to Kilometers
1 Mile = 1.60934 Kilometers
1 Kilometer = 0.621371 Miles

To better understand this example, make sure you have knowledge of the following tutorials:-

## Python Program to Convert Miles to Kilometers:

miles = float(input("Enter the value in miles: "))
conversion_factor = 1.60934
kilometers = miles * conversion_factor
print('%.4f miles = %0.4f kilometers' %(miles, kilometers))

The output of the above program is:-

Enter the value in miles: 4
4.0000 miles = 6.4374 kilometers

## Python Program to Convert Miles to Kilometers:

kilometers = float(input("Enter the value in kilometers: "))
conversion_factor = 0.621371
miles = kilometers * conversion_factor
print('%0.4f kilometers = %0.4f miles' %(kilometers, miles))

The output of the above program is:-

Enter the value in kilometers: 2
2.0000 kilometers = 1.2427 miles
