Oops - kilometers are shorter than miles. 21 kilometers = 13 miles.
-OO-

Oops indeed. I wrote that one too fast.

Now all I have to do is remember the Fibonacci Sequence.. All these yeasr I've been wasting my time memorizing PI to the ten thousandth decimal place...

You don't have to memorize the Fibonacci sequence. All you have to do is add.

gail

However, you could memorize the golden ratio if you are so inclined.

It's a heck of a lot easier just to do the math. One kilometer is .6 miles. You just multiply by six and move the decimal.

Say it's 8K. 8(6)=48. So 8K is 4.8 miles.

CraigC

Or the other way around, lol.

Which is not quite as simple. It gives you a good approximation, though, if you can divide in your head and apply the remainder.
