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 33 kg. So, we substitute x = 33 kg into the equation:

33 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = y lbs

Step 4: Perform the calculation

Multiply 33 kg by 2.20462 to find the weight in lbs:

33 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = 72.75246 lbs

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)

Since weight is often rounded to a certain decimal place, you can round the result to your desired level of precision. In this case, rounding to two decimal places gives us:

72.75 lbs

Therefore, 33 kg is approximately equal to 72.75 lbs.
