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 can be written as:
W_lbs = W_kg * 2.20462

Step 3: Plug in the given weight in kg
In this case, the given weight is 79.0 kg. So, we substitute W_kg = 79.0 in the equation:
W_lbs = 79.0 * 2.20462

Step 4: Perform the calculation
Multiply 79.0 by 2.20462 using a calculator or by hand:
W_lbs = 174.16598

W_lbs ≈ 174 lbs

Therefore, 79.0 kg is approximately equal to 174 lbs.
