Converting Kilos to pounds

Let’s start off with looking at converting Kilos to pounds. 86 kilos into pounds:

Step one, multiply the kilos by TWO.

To do this, just double the kilos.

86 x 2 = 172

Step two, divide the answer by ten.

To do this, just put a decimal point one place in from the right.

172 / 10 = 17.2

Step three, add step two’s answer to step one’s answer.

172 + 17.2 = 189.2

86 Kilos = 189.2 pounds

Let’s try:

50 Kilos to pounds:

Step one, multiply the kilos by TWO.

To do this, just double the kilos.

50 x 2 = 100

Step two, divide the answer by ten.

To do this, just put a decimal point one place in from the right.

100 / 10 = 10

Step three, add step two’s answer to step one’s answer.

100 + 10 = 110

50 Kilos = 110 pounds

  1. Related metric conversion trick:

    Miles to Kilometers.
    1) remember that there are more letters in Kilometers, so generally there are more kilometers in a distance than there are miles
    2) take miles, and double it 4 times.
    3) move the decimal place to reduce it

    Example: 100 miles
    double 4 times: 200, 400, 800, 1600.
    Move decimal place: 160.0 kilometers (actually 160.9)

    Example: 60 miles
    double 4 times: 120, 240, 480, 960.
    move decimal place: 96.0 kilometers (actually 96.56)

    Converting the other way:
    Halve it four times
    Move the decimal place to make it bigger.

    Example: 130 kilometers
    half: 65, 32.5, 16.25, 8.125
    move the decimal place 81.25 (actually 80.7)
