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 = y lbs

Step 3: Substitute the given value
In this case, the given weight is 72 kg. So, we can substitute x = 72 kg into the equation:
72 kg = y lbs

Step 4: Solve for y
To find the weight in lbs (y), we need to solve the equation. Multiply both sides of the equation by the conversion factor (2.20462):
72 kg * 2.20462 = y lbs

Step 5: Perform the calculation
Using a calculator, multiply 72 by 2.20462:
72 * 2.20462 = 158.73

Step 6: Round the answer (if necessary)
Since weight is typically rounded to two decimal places, we can round 158.73 to 158.73 lbs.

Step 7: Write the final answer
Therefore, 72 kg is approximately equal to 158.73 lbs.

Note: The conversion factor used in this example, 2.20462, is an approximation. If you require a more precise conversion, you can use a more accurate value for the conversion factor.
