## How to Convert Kilopound Feet to Pound Feet

*Example: How many pound feet are equivalent to 52.4 kilopound feet?*

As;

1 kilopound feet = 1000 pound feet

52.4 kilopound feet = Y pound feet

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 52.4 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 52.4 * 1000 / 1 = 52400 pound feet

Answer is: 52400 pound feet are equivalent to 52.4 kilopound feet.
