To convert pounds (lbs) to kilograms (kg), you can use the following step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Understand the conversion factor

1 lb is equal to approximately 0.45359237 kg. This is the conversion factor we will use to convert pounds to kilograms.

Step 2: Set up the conversion equation

To convert 14.5 lbs to kg, we can set up the equation as follows:

14.5 lbs * (0.45359237 kg/1 lb)

Step 3: Cancel out the units

In the equation, the unit “lbs” appears in both the numerator and denominator. This allows us to cancel out the unit and only keep the unit “kg” in the numerator.

Step 4: Perform the calculation

Now, we can multiply the numerical values:

14.5 * 0.45359237 = 6.577068

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)

Since the original weight value was given to one decimal place (14.5 lbs), it is appropriate to round the converted value to the same decimal place. Therefore, the weight in kilograms is approximately 6.6 kg.

So, 14.5 lbs is approximately equal to 6.6 kg.
