# What Is The Easiest Way To Convert Metric Units?

0

The metric system and the imperial system are both used across the world interchangeably. Scientific measurements are specifically done in the metric system which makes it difficult for individuals used to imperial measurements. Because of this reason there is no shortage of online calculators that help anyone confused in the conversion process.

However, the option for accessing an online calculator is not always available. In such a case you will need to rely on simple tricks that allow conversion from the metric to the imperial system. We have included quick tricks that are easy to do in your head.

## From Kilograms to Pounds

1 kilogram is equal to 2.2 pounds. This will make for a very complicated calculation in one’s head especially with larger values. However, if you divide the calculation into two parts it becomes easier to convert metric units. Take any value and multiply it by 2 and keep the resultant figure in your head.

The resultant figure should then be divided by 10. The number you get after the division should be added to the initial result you got. The sum will be the weight of the value in pounds. For instance take 80 kilograms. Multiplying it by 2 gives 160. Now, divide 160 by 10 to get 16. Add 16 to 160 and the answer will be 176 pounds. You will most likely get decimal numbers with odd figures but this is a fair method for generic calculations.
