While converting kilograms into pounds then keep one simple rule in mind:
1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds (there are 2.2 pounds in a kilogram)
This means that the pound is a smaller unit and it takes 2.2 pounds to be equal to one kg. So when we say one pound and one kilogram, we should know that one kilogram is heavier than one pound. To convert any quantity given in kilograms to pounds, then multiply it by 2.2. For example if you have to convert 25 kilograms into pounds then this is what you should do:
25 × 2.2 = 55 pounds
