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 kg to lbs, you need to multiply the weight in kg by 2.20462.

Step 2: Set up the conversion equation

Let’s denote the weight in kg as “x” and the weight in lbs 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 22 kg. So, we substitute x = 22 kg into the equation:

22 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = y lbs

Step 4: Perform the calculation

Multiply 22 kg by 2.20462 to find the weight in lbs:

22 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = 48.50164 lbs

Step 5: Round the answer (if necessary)

Since weight is typically rounded to the nearest whole number, we can round 48.50164 lbs to 49 lbs.

Therefore, 22 kg is approximately equal to 49 lbs.
