## How to Convert Kilopounds to Long Tons

*Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 54.31 kilopounds?*

As;

1 kilopounds = 0.44642867270722 Long tons

54.31 kilopounds = Y Long tons

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

Y equals 54.31 times 0.44642867270722 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 54.31 * 0.44642867270722 / 1 = 24.245541214729 Long tons

Answer is: 24.245541214729 Long tons are equivalent to 54.31 kilopounds.
