    Default Easily Convert Kg's to Lb's in Your Head

    How to do it.

    1) Double the Kg figure.
    2) Take all but the last digit of the result.
    3) Add it to the result.

    Examples
    10KG

    1) Double it: 20
    2) Take all but the last digit of the result: 2
    3) Add it to the result: 20 + 2 = 22lbs

    100kg

    1) Double it: 200
    2) Take all but the last digit of the result: 20
    3) Add it to the result: 200 + 20 = 220lbs

    350kg

    1) Double it: 700
    2) Take all but the last digit of the result: 70
    3) Add it to the result: 700 + 70 = 770lbs
