## How to Convert Kilograms to Kilopounds

### Example: How many kilopounds are equivalent to 4.39 kilograms?

As;

1 kilograms = 0.00220462 kilopounds

4.39 kilograms = Y kilopounds

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

Y equals 4.39 times 0.00220462 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.39 * 0.00220462 / 1 = 0.0096782818 kilopounds

Answer is: 0.0096782818 kilopounds are equivalent to 4.39 kilograms.
