You need to convert miles to kilometers, ie. multiply 65 by 1.61. The answer then is 104.65, which in practice would be nearer 100 km/h. I'm basing this on the asumption that your speedometer doesn't have miles - only kilometers and you want an answer that will keep you within the legal limit.

I lived in Europe for 10 years. We divided by 8 and multiplied by 5 to convert from kilometers to miles, and divided by 5 and multiplied by 8 to convert from miles to kilometers. It is a rough, but very accurate conversion that you can do in your head most times, and it keeps you legal.

In your example 65 divided by 5 is 13. 13 times 8 is 104 kilometers. As you can see, the error is less than 1 kph and no cop in the world cares about that.

The speed limit on the highway is 104.6 kilometers per hour. This is calculated by multiplying 65 miles per hour by 1.61 kilometers per mile.

60 miles per hour = 26.822 meters per second (rounded)
