I recently took a trip to Canada, and I had a hard time speaking metric, especially when asking for directions. After a little bit of thought, here's a quick way to convert between the two.

Miles to Kilometers: Essentially, you're adding 60%. While that's kinda hard to do in your head, if you break it down into 50% + 10%, it makes it much easier.

Lets say you're trying to convert 50 Miles into kilometers. You're going to add 50 + 25 + 5. (100% + 50% + 10%). That equals 80 km. It's precise conversion is 80.4672. So that's not bad for a quick conversion.

Let's do another. 70 Miles. 70 + 35 + 7 = 112 km. It's exact conversion is 112.654. Again, not 100% accurate, but close enough to get you where you need to go.

Kilometers to Miles: Essentially the opposite, you're subtracting 40%. Again, it's much easier if you break it down. Subtra...
