Ah yes... that old favourite: the abrupt switching of metric half-way
through the "calculation".

You can get any result you want like that.

All you had to do was ask, and someone would have converted it for you. No

1000 / 1.609344 = 621.3 miles.

Still over ten times the UK figure.

Latin _and_ basic arithmetic too hard for you?
