To convert 22 kilometers to miles, we use the conversion factor that 1 kilometer is approximately equal to 0.621371 miles. The calculation is as follows:

\([ 22 \, \text{km} \times 0.621371 \, \frac{\text{miles}}{\text{km}} = 13.660162 \, \text{miles} ]\)

Thus, 22 kilometers is equal to about 13.66 miles.

This conversion is achieved by applying the conversion rate between kilometers and miles directly to the quantity we wish to convert. The specific conversion factor, 0.621371, is used because it represents how many miles are in a single kilometer. By multiplying the number of kilometers by this conversion factor, we find the equivalent distance in miles. This method is straightforward and can be used to convert any distance from kilometers to miles or vice versa, provided that the correct conversion factor is utilized. The principle behind this conversion relies on understanding and applying the correct equivalencies between the metric system (which uses kilometers among other units) and the British imperial/United States customary systems (which use miles).
