## Formula to Convert Kilos to Pounds and Pounds to Kilos

### How many Pounds to Kg (lbs to kg)

To convert pounds to kilograms, multiply pounds by 0.45

kg = lbs * 0.45

For example, 120 pounds to kg, is 120*0.45 = 54.43 kgs

### How many Kg to Pounds (kg to lbs)

To convert kilograms to pounds, multiply kilograms by 2.2

lb = kg * 2.2

### How to Convert Kg to Lb without a tool?

This is a shortcut and is an approximation

Step 1: Multiply Kg by 2. For eg let's convert 73 kg to pound.
73 * 2 = 146

Divide the result by 10 which is 146/10 = 14.6

Add the 2 numbers and you get 146 + 14.6 = 160.6 lbs.
Note: The actual result is 160.9 lbs

### How to Convert lb to kg without a tool?

This is a shortcut and is an approximation. You can try this for lbs between 10 to 99 lbs and with other ranges you will get slightly higher error margins

Step 1:Leaving out the last digit, subtract the lb value from the remaining digits. For eg let's convert 180 lbs to kg.
if we leave out the last one, we get 18, so subtract 180-18 = 162

Divide the result by 2 which is 162/2 = 81 kg

The actual result is 81.6 kg

Let's take 99 lbs to kg, the number leaving out the last digit is 9.
Subtracting 9 from 99 we get 99 - 9 = 90

Divide 90 by 2 and we get 45.
Note: The actual result is 44.9 lbs
