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: Plug in the given value
In this case, the given weight is 5.5 kg. So, we substitute x = 5.5 kg into the equation:
5.5 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = y lbs

Step 4: Perform the calculation
Multiply 5.5 kg by 2.20462 lbs/kg:
5.5 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = 12.12541 lbs

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)

12.12541 lbs ≈ 12.13 lbs

Therefore, 5.5 kg is approximately equal to 12.13 lbs.
