## How to Convert Kilograms to Ounces

*Example: How many Ounces are equivalent to 60.88 kilograms?*

As;

1 kilograms = 35.27337 Ounces

60.88 kilograms = Y Ounces

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

Y equals 60.88 times 35.27337 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 60.88 * 35.27337 / 1 = 2147.4427656 Ounces

Answer is: 2147.4427656 Ounces are equivalent to 60.88 kilograms.
