## How to convert the (kg to pound) or (pound to kg)?

Example 1:

If the weight of the box is 25 kilograms then what is the value in pounds?

Solution:

Step 1: Write the data from the question.

Box weight = 25 kg, Box Weight (in pounds) =?

Step 2: Write the conversion factor for “1 kg into pounds”.

`1 kg = 2.20462 lbs`

Step 3: Put the values in the above conversion factor and simplify.

weight in (kg) = 25 kg

Weight (in pounds) = weight in (kg) × 2.20462

Weight (in pounds) = 25 × 2.20462

`Weight (in pounds) = 55.11 (lbs)`

Example 2:

If the weight of a cube box is 70 pounds then what is the value in kilogram?

Solution:

Step 1: Write the data from the question.

Box weight (in kg) =?, Box Weight (in pounds) = 70 lbs

Step 2: Write the conversion factor for “1 pound into kg”.

1 kg = 2.20462 lbs

1 pound = 1/2.20462 kg

`1 pound = 0.45359 kg`

Weight (in kg) = weight in (pound) × 0.45359

Step 3: Put the values in the above conversion factor and simplify.

weight in (pound)= 70 lbs

Weight (in kg) = weight in (pound) × 0.45359

Weight (in kg) = 70 × 0.45359

`Weight (in kg) = 31.75 (kg)`
