Some countries use pound instead of kilogram. If you want to know how much you have to pay, for instance, for one kilogram of strawberries, you have to **convert price per kg to lb**.

We want to show you **how to convert price per kg to price per lb** step by step. We promise, after reading this article everything will be clear. So keep reading!

Before we move on to** kg to pound price conversion**, you need to know some theoretical information. Thanks to this you will better understand this topic.

**Let’s start with a dollar**. Do you know that there are more than one kind of dollar? To be honest, there are more than 20 kinds of dollar!

Of course, the most known kind of dollar is American dollar. We want to focus on it in this article. One of most known kind of dollar is also Canadian dollar. We know that many of you use this currency, so we gave an exchange rate USD to CAD and vice versa down below:

- 1 USD = 1.35 CAD,
- 1 CAD = 0.74 USD.

Thanks to this you can easily convert price per kilogram in USD to price per kilogram in CAD. Then you can calculate **price per kg to lb**.

Remember that an exchange rate is current at the moment of writing this article. When you are reading this article an exchange rate may vary. Please check it before making your calculation to be sure that the result will be correct.

Before we show you** how to convert price per kg to lb**, we want to tell you a little about kilogram and pound too.

**The kilogram **is a unit of mass in International System of Units (in abbreviated form SI, also known as a metric system).

The kilogram can be also written as kilogramme or kilo. The symbol of a kilogram is kg.

Formerly, the kilogram was defined as the mass of one liter of water. This definition was difficult to use despite the fact that same definition was not complicated.

Nowadays the kilogram is defined as: “The kilogram, symbol kg, is the SI unit of mass. It is defined by taking the fixed numerical value of the Planck constant h to be 6.62607015×10^{−34} when expressed in the unit J⋅s, which is equal to kg⋅m^{2}⋅s^{−1}, where the metre and the second are defined in terms of c and Δν_{Cs}.”

The kilogram is used in everyday life, for instance, to measure food. In kilograms is given also human weight. The kilogram has also a different use. This unit is used in science, engineering and commerce.

**The pound **is also unit of mass but in Imperial and United States customary systems of measurements. This unit is sometimes used in other systems too.

If it comes to pound it is more complicated because there are more than one kind of pound. The most common kind of pound is avoirdupois pound but there is also, for instance, troy pound.

In this article we want to focus on avoirdupois pound only. The symbol of this unit is lb or “.

The avoirdupois pound is defined as 16 ounces or 0.45359237 kilograms. There is no descriptive definition as in the case of kilogram.

In pound, like in kilogram, is measured food or human weight. As you can see, this unit is also used in everyday life.

Now you know a little about kilogram and pound. For** kg to lbs price conversion **you will also need to know how many pounds are in one kilogram and vice versa. You can find it down below, have a look:

- 1 kilogram = 2.20462262 pounds,
- 1 pound = 0.45359237 kilogram.

This was the last thing in theoretical part of the article. Now we can move on to practice and main topic of the article, that is **kg to lb price conversion**. If you want to know **how do you convert price per kg to price per pound**, keep reading.

Let’s start with practical part of **price conversion kg to lb**. Before we show you step by step examples you need a **cost per kg to cost per lb** formula. We gave it down below, let’s see:

**Cost per kilogram / 2.20462262 = cost per pound
**

This is a first, full version of a formula. Thanks to using it your result will be the most accurate. We know that sometimes such accurate result is not needed so we will give you also a shorter version of a formula. It is down below, have a look:

**Cost per kilogram / 2.2 = cost per pound
**

If you use this formula your calculation will be easier. If you do not need so accurate result this formula will be perfect for you.

Do you not know which formula pick to **convert cost per kg to cost per lb**? Don’t worry. We will show you examples using both full formula and short formula. Thanks to this your choice will be so much easier.

Let’s start. Before we show you how to **convert price per kg to price per lb** using our formula we want to quickly show how to calculate kilograms into pounds. For instance, **how much is 20 kg in pounds**?

You have to multiply 20 by 2.20462262. It gives 44.0924524. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 44.09 lbs.

Now we can move on to conversion of** kg price to lb price**. We will start with examples using a full formula. Have a look:

Let’s calculate** $5.49 per kg in pounds**. **How do you convert per kg to price per pound? **Divide 5.49 by 2.20462262. It gives 2.490222113388277. Now round it off to two decimal places. It is equal 2.49, so 5.49$ per kilogram is equal 2.49$ per pound.

Another example. Now convert **$7.49 per kg to lbs**. Divide 7.49 by 2.20462262. It gives 3.397406854149033. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 3.40. So 7.49$ per kilogram is equal 3.40$ **per lb**.

Let’s convert** $11 per kg to lbs**. And again, divide 11 by 2.20462262. It gives 4.989516074184161. Round it off to two decimal places. It is equal 4.99, so 11$ per kg is 4.99** $/lb**.

Now calculate **$13.21 per kg to lbs**. Divide 13.21 by 2.20462262. It gives 5.991955212724797. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 5.99. So** cost per lb** is equal 5.99$.

We also gathered all these results in a chart. Have a look:

Cost in $ per kilogram | Cost in $ per pound |

5.49 | 2.49 |

7.49 | 3.40 |

11 | 4.99 |

13.21 | 5.99 |

Now we want to show you the same examples calculated with a short formula. Let’s start!

Try to calculate **$5.49 per kg in pounds**. Divide 5.49 by 2.2. It gives 2.495454545454545. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 2.50. So **lbs price** is 2.50$.

The second example - convert **$7.49 per kg to lbs**. Divide 7.49 by 2.2. It gives 3.404545454545455. Round it off to two decimal places. It is equal 3.40, so **cost per pound** is 3.40$.

Now calculate **$11 per kg to lbs**. Divide 11 by 2.2. It gives 5. In this example you do not have to round off anything. So it is 5 **usd/lb**.

The last example. Convert **$13.21 per kg to lbs**. Divide 13.21 by 2.2. It gives 6.004545454545455. After rounding off to two decimal places it is 6.00, so 13.21 usd/kg is 6.00 **usd/lb**.

As in the previous part, we also gathered the results in a table. It is down below:

Cost in $ per kilogram | Cost in $ per pound |

5.49 | 2.50 |

7.49 | 3.40 |

11 | 5.00 |

13.21 | 6.00 |

As you can see, the difference between the results calculated using a full formula and a short formula is not significant. Of course, if you calculate bigger number the difference will be more significant but for everyday use, for instance, during shopping, it is sufficient to use a shorter formula.

Now we want to show you more examples from everyday life using both formulas.

One kilogram of peppers costs 3 US dollars. Let’s **convert $/kg to $/lb**. Divide 3 by 2.20462262. It gives 1.360777111141135. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 1.36, so one pound of peppers costs 1.36 US dollars.

One kilogram of cheddar cheese costs 8 dollars. **Convert price per kg to price per pound**. Divide 8 by 2.20462262. It gives 3.628738963043026. Round it off to two decimal places. It is equal 3.63. So one pound of cheddar cheese costs 3.63 dollars.

One kilogram of flour costs 2 dollars. **How do you convert price per kg to price per pound?** Let’s divide 2 by 2.20462262. It gives 0.907184740760757. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 0.91, so one pound of flour costs 0.91 dollars.

One kilogram of sour cream costs 4.50 dollars. Convert **price per kilogram to price per pound**. Divide 4.5 by 2.20462262. It gives 2.041165666711702. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 2.04, so one pound of sour cream costs 2.04 dollars.

You can see all these results in a chart down below:

Product | Cost in $ per kilogram | Cost in $ per pound |

Peppers | 3 | 1.36 |

Cheddar cheese | 8 | 3.63 |

Flour | 2 | 0.91 |

Sugar | 1.70 | 0.77 |

Sour cream | 4.50 | 2.04 |

Now try to calculate** price per kg to lbs** for the same products using short formula.

One kilogram of peppers costs 3 dollars. To convert **$ per kg to $ per pound **you have to divide 3 by 2.2. It gives 1.363636363636364. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 1.36. So one pound of peppers costs 1.36 dollars.

One kilogram of cheddar cheese costs 8 dollars. Let’s calculate **kg to lbs price**. Divide 8 by 2.2. It gives 3.636363636363636. Round it off to two decimal places. It is equal 3.64. So one pound of cheddar cheese costs 3.64 dollars.

One kilogram of flour costs 2 dollars. Convert **usd/kg to usd/lb**. Divide 2 by 2.2. It gives 0.909090909090909. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 0.91, so one pound of flour costs 0.91 dollars.

One kilogram of sugar costs 1.70 dollars. So **convert dollars per kg to dollars per pound**. Divide 1.70 by 2.2. It gives 0.772727272727273. Round it off to two decimal places. It is equal 0.77, so one pound of sugar costs 0.77 dollars.
The last example.

One kilogram of sour cream costs 4.50 dollars. Let’s calculate** price/kg to price/lb**. Divide 4.50 by 2.2. It gives 2.045454545454545. After rounding off to two decimal places it is equal 2.05, so one pound of sour cream costs 2.05 dollars.

As you can see, the results are not differ significantly. Only two results calculated with short formula are a little bit different from results calculated with full formula.

All these results you can also see in a chart down below:

Product | Cost in $ per kilogram | Cost in $ per pound |

Peppers | 3 | 1.36 |

Cheddar cheese | 8 | 3.64 |

Flour | 2 | 0.91 |
