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 7.4 kg. So, we substitute x = 7.4 kg into the equation:

7.4 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = y lbs

Step 4: Perform the calculation

Multiply 7.4 kg by 2.20462 lbs/kg:

7.4 kg * 2.20462 lbs/kg = 16.314188 lbs

Step 5: Round the result (if necessary)

The result, 16.314188 lbs, can be rounded to a desired number of decimal places. In this case, let’s round it to one decimal place:

16.314188 lbs ≈ 16.3 lbs

Therefore, 7.4 kg is approximately equal to 16.3 lbs.
