Kg to lbs conversion few examples

Question 1: A grocery store sells apples in packages labeled with their weight in kilograms. If a package of apples weighs 2.5 kg, approximately how many pounds does it weigh? Remember that 1 kg is approximately equal to 2.2 lbs.

Answer Choices:

  • A) 4.5 lbs
  • B) 5.0 lbs
  • C) 5.5 lbs
  • D) 6.0 lbs

Explanation: To convert kilograms to pounds, we can use the formula:

Pounds (lbs) = Kilograms (kg) × 2.2

Given that the package of apples weighs 2.5 kg, we can use the formula to find its weight in pounds:

2.5 kg × 2.2 lbs/kg = 5.5 lbs

So, the package of apples weighs approximately 5.5 pounds.

Therefore, the correct answer is option C) 5.5 lbs.

Question 2: John’s weight is 90 kilograms. Approximately how many pounds does he weigh? Remember that 1 kilogram is approximately equal to 2.2 pounds.

Answer Choices:

  • A) 180 lbs
  • B) 198 lbs
  • C) 200 lbs
  • D) 220 lbs

We will calculate this answer in 3 different methods

1. Exact Conversion Method.

Pounds (lbs) = Kilograms (kg) × 2.20462 Pounds

90 kg × 2.20462 ≈ 198.418 lbs

2. Rounded Conversion:

Using a rounded conversion factor (1 kg ≈ 2.2 lbs), we can mentally calculate:
90 kg × 2.2 ≈ 198 lbs

3. Mental Approximation:
For a quick mental calculation, we can round 90 kg to 100 kg and apply the rounded conversion factor:
100 kg × 2.2 = 220 lbs

Then, since we approximated up, we can adjust slightly downward to account for the difference:
220 lbs − (10% of 220 lbs)=220 lbs− 22lbs=198lbs

Therefore, the correct answer is option B) 198 lbs.
