## How to Convert Kilopound Feet to Pound Inches

*Example: How many pound inches are equivalent to 5.79 kilopound feet?*

As;

1 kilopound feet = 12000 pound inches

5.79 kilopound feet = Y pound inches

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

Y equals 5.79 times 12000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 5.79 * 12000 / 1 = 69480 pound inches

Answer is: 69480 pound inches are equivalent to 5.79 kilopound feet.
