In the Imperial System, unit of length is known as the mile. “mi” is the abbreviation of a mile. Do you know that the concept of the mile was originated in Roman times? Mille Passum was the unit of distance used by the Romans which literally means “a thousand paces.” Five roman feet were considered to be a pace. These were a bit shorter than our modern feet. 5000 Roman feet were considered a mile. In our modern feet, it is roughly 4850. Besides, 1 mile equals 1609.34 meters.

## How Many Meters In A Mile?

As we have described earlier,

• 1 mile = 1609.34 meters

So if we have to convert miles into meter we will simply multiply the value of the miles by 1609.34.

For Example If we have to convert 1.7 miles into meter then we will multiply 1.7 miles with 1609.34.

• 1.7 mi = 1.7 x 1609.34
• 1.7mi = 2735.88 m

## How Many Miles In A Meter?

As we know:

• 1 meter = 1/1609.34 miles
• Or 1 meter = 0.000621371 miles

So if we have to convert miles into meter then we will divide the value of meters with 1609.34 or just multiply the value with 0.000621371. For Example

If we have to convert 2.8 meters into miles then divide 2.8 with 1609.34.

• 2.8 meters = 2.8 / 1609.34
• 2.8 meters = 0.00173984 miles
