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 W_kg and the weight in lbs as W_lbs. The conversion equation is:

W_lbs = W_kg * 2.20462

Step 3: Plug in the given weight in kg

In this case, the given weight is 420 kg. So, we substitute W_kg = 420 into the equation:

W_lbs = 420 * 2.20462

Step 4: Perform the calculation

Multiply 420 by 2.20462:

W_lbs = 925.9414

Step 5: Round the result (optional)

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

W_lbs ≈ 925.94

Therefore, 420 kg is approximately equal to 925.94 lbs.
