## How to Convert Inches to Miles

*Example: How many miles are equivalent to 42.8 inches?*

As;

1 inches = 1.6E-5 miles

42.8 inches = Y miles

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 42.8 times 1.6E-5 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 42.8 * 1.6E-5 / 1 = 0.0006848 miles

Answer is: 0.0006848 miles are equivalent to 42.8 inches.
