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

Step 1: Understand the conversion factor

1 kilogram (kg) is equal to 2.20462 pounds (lbs). This means that to convert kilograms to pounds, you need to multiply the weight in kilograms by 2.20462.

Step 2: Set up the conversion equation

Let’s denote the weight in kilograms as “x” and the weight in pounds as “y”. The equation for the conversion is:

x kg * 2.20462 = y lbs

Step 3: Substitute the given value

In this case, the given weight is 143 kg. So, we substitute x = 143 kg into the equation:

143 kg * 2.20462 = y lbs

Step 4: Calculate the conversion

Multiply 143 kg by 2.20462:

143 kg * 2.20462 = 315.26366 lbs

Step 5: Round the answer (if necessary)
