How to Convert Long Tons to Kilopounds

Example: How many kilopounds are equivalent to 60.97 Long tons?


As;

1 Long tons = 2.2399994918244 kilopounds

60.97 Long tons = Y kilopounds

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

Y equals 60.97 times 2.2399994918244 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 60.97 * 2.2399994918244 / 1 = 136.57276901653 kilopounds

Answer is: 136.57276901653 kilopounds are equivalent to 60.97 Long tons.
