Mind blown, I never realized this coincidence:

You can use the next number in the Fibonacci sequence (1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34) to convert from miles to kilometers.

For example, 13 miles is 21 kilometers.


@fribbledom Not quite. 1 mile is approximately 1.6km, so there is quite a bit of rounding error involved, and this breaks down as the Fibonacci sequence gets bigger. But for the most part its close enough


@fribbledom If you want a precise conversion, 1 mile is precisely equal to 1.609344km ;)
