I have to do a bunch of problems such as converting meter to km and cups to mililiters etc. How do i calculate sig figures for these problems

for example

i did 12 miles to kilometers

12 miles x 1.609 km/1mile = 19.308 km = 19 km ? do i leave the sig figs at 19.308 or do i change the answer to 19 to make the answer only 2 signigicant figures? because 12 miles is only 12 sig figs i made the answer two is that correct....thanks
