so 300/1609= approx. .1875 or 3/16th of a mile (i used 1600 instead of 1609 to get a fraction answer)

Knowing a simple and precisely accurate conversion factor is helpful. Just memorize this: 1 foot is .3048 meters. That is the *precise* ratio.

300 meters divided by .3048 is: 984.25196850393700787401574803 feet.

5280 feet (one mile) divided by that number yields: 0.1864113576712001908852302553 miles.

The decimals run on, but that should be precise enough for most purposes. :-)

You can utilize that same ratio to convert between miles and kilometers, millimeters (or microns even) and thousandths of an inch, and so on.

So hang onto that one: **.3048**
