A nautical mile (knot or kt) is approximately 115% of a statute

mile. So if you're traveling at one kt, your speed in mph is 1.15.

If you're going 10 kts, you're doing 11.5 mph, and if you're going

100 kts, you're doing 115 mph.

A nautical mile is 6076 feet and a statute mile is 5280 feet.

Dividing 6076 by 5280 gives us 1.1507575 or...about 1.15, as stated

in the above answer.
