Is 20 miles more or less than 20,000 kilometers?

1 mile = 1.60934 km
What do you think? 
Well how would you show your work?

If you tell me what you think and why, I'll show you how to show the work.

Well I started with...
20 x 1,000 and got 20,000 kilometers
next i'm thinking I should do
20,000 x ? 
What do you think you should do with this fact?
1 mile = 1.60934 km 
Do 1.60934 divided by 20,000?

Let's set up a proportion. Cross multiply and solve for x.
1/ 1.60934 = 20/x
x = 32.1868
20 miles = 32.1868 km 
can you PLEASE explain it in any easier way?:(

20 * 1.60934 = ________ km

20 x 1.60934=_ km?

Yes. * means multiply

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You're welcome. :)
