## How to Convert Grams to Pounds

*Example: How many pounds are equivalent to 48.4 grams?*

As;

1 grams = 0.00220462 pounds

48.4 grams = Y pounds

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

Y equals 48.4 times 0.00220462 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 48.4 * 0.00220462 / 1 = 0.106703608 pounds

Answer is: 0.106703608 pounds are equivalent to 48.4 grams.
