## How to Convert Millimeters to Miles

*Example: How many miles are equivalent to 12.48 millimeters?*

As;

1 millimeters = 6.21E-7 miles

12.48 millimeters = Y miles

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

Y equals 12.48 times 6.21E-7 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.48 * 6.21E-7 / 1 = 7.75008E-6 miles

Answer is: 7.75008E-6 miles are equivalent to 12.48 millimeters.
