# 90 Kilos Equals How Many Pounds?

90 kilos is the same as 198.414 pounds. If you think, given that every kilogram is the same as around 2.2 pounds, then you need to multiply 2.2 by 90, which gives you that answer.

Even though the United Kingdom official started its switch to the metric measurement system during 1965, the older imperial units that were around for so much longer are still around and are still used by people and organizations.

Publicans still sell pints in their pubs, and motorists refer to moving in traffic jams as 'inching along'. These measurements have been around for so long that a lot of tradition has developed around the measurements and they will of course never not be used.

Some things, too, just sound better using the imperial measurements. Sayings wouldn't be the same with the new system, for instance, who would say 'give him a centimeter and he'll take a kilometer'? It doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

But no matter what the reason is, people these days still have a reason to convert the two kinds of measurements, and when they do (for things like shopping and cooking) they generally turn to the Internet for help. Supermarkets weight potatoes in kilograms, which is one other reason people would need to convert. Many shoppers still visualize their potatoes in pounds, so it's important to recognize that by using the Internet you can really find out what something weighs and how to do the conversion for future reference.

Whether you're looking for the calculation so you can work things out yourself, you will have access to all the information that you need on the Internet.  Simply make a Google search with all the information that you need to know and you are bound to find many websites to help you.
