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 conversion equation can be written as:

x kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = y lbs

Step 3: Substitute the given value

In this case, the given weight is 215 kg. So, we substitute x = 215 kg into the equation:

215 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = y lbs

Step 4: Perform the calculation

Multiply 215 kg by 2.20462 to find the weight in pounds:

215 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = 474.01 lbs

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)

Since pounds are typically rounded to two decimal places, we can round the result to:

474.01 lbs ≈ 474 lbs

Therefore, 215 kg is approximately equal to 474 lbs.
