# Program to convert kilometers into miles # Input is provided by the user in kilometer # take input from the user kilometers = float(input('How many kilometers?: ')) # conversion factor conv_fac = 0.621371 # calculate miles miles = kilometers * conv_fac print('%0.3f kilometers is equal to %0.3f miles' %(kilometers,miles))
How many kilometers?: 5.5 5.500 kilometers is equal to 3.418 miles
In this program, we use the ask the user for kilometers and convert it to miles by multiplying it with the conversion factor. With a slight modification, we can convert miles to kilometers. We ask for miles and use the following formula to convert it into kilometers.
kilometers = miles / conv_fac
