How to Convert Kilometers to Inches

Example: How many inches are equivalent to 20.7 kilometers?


As;

1 kilometers = 39370.08 inches

20.7 kilometers = Y inches

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

Y equals 20.7 times 39370.08 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 20.7 * 39370.08 / 1 = 814960.656 inches

Answer is: 814960.656 inches are equivalent to 20.7 kilometers.
