## How to Convert Miles to Inches

*Example: How many inches are equivalent to 79.45 miles?*

As;

1 miles = 63360 inches

79.45 miles = Y inches

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

Y equals 79.45 times 63360 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 79.45 * 63360 / 1 = 5033952 inches

Answer is: 5033952 inches are equivalent to 79.45 miles.
