According to the question, we need to find about units of meters which make a mile.

For that, first we will need to convert it into inches, then into feet, then into yards and finally into miles.

According to the international unit conversions, we have

$2.54$ cm in $1$ inch

$12$ inches in $1$ foot

$3$ feet in $1$ yard

$1760$ yards in $1$ mile

So, firstly we will convert the centimeter into miles. For that, we have

$2.54 \times 12 \times 3 \times 1760 = 160934.4$ cm in $1$ mile

Now, we know that they are exactly in $100$ cm in $1$m.

Therefore,

$\dfrac{{160934.4}}{{100}} = 1609.344$ meters in $1$ mile

A mile (symbol: mi or m) is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. It is currently equal to $5280$ feet, $1760$ yards, or exactly $1609.344$ meters. A meter, or metre (symbol: m), is the base unit of length and distance in the International System of Units (SI). The meter is defined as the distance travelled by light in $\dfrac{1}{{299{\text{ }}792{\text{ }}458}}$ of a second. There are $1609.344$ meters in $1$mile.
