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 weight in kg

In this case, the given weight is 7.2 kg. So, we substitute x = 7.2 kg into the equation:

7.2 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = y lbs

Step 4: Perform the calculation

Multiply 7.2 kg by 2.20462 lbs/kg:

7.2 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = 15.873 lbs

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)

The result, 15.873 lbs, can be rounded to the desired level of precision. In this case, let’s round it to one decimal place:

15.873 lbs ≈ 15.9 lbs

Therefore, 7.2 kg is approximately equal to 15.9 lbs.
