## How to Convert Kilopounds to Long Tons

*Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 38.85 kilopounds?*

As;

1 kilopounds = 0.44642867270722 Long tons

38.85 kilopounds = Y Long tons

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

Y equals 38.85 times 0.44642867270722 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 38.85 * 0.44642867270722 / 1 = 17.343753934675 Long tons

Answer is: 17.343753934675 Long tons are equivalent to 38.85 kilopounds.
