To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following Python programming topics:
kilometers = 5.5
# To take kilometers from the user, uncomment the code below
# kilometers = float(input("Enter value in 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))
5.500 kilometers is equal to 3.418 miles
Note: To test the program, change the value of kilometers.
Your turn: Modify the above program to convert miles to kilometers using the following formula and run it.
kilometers = miles / conv_fac
