Answer

16.9 lb (rounded)

Work Step by Step

7.68 kg to pounds We’re changing from a metric weight unit to a U.S. weight unit. In the “Metric to U.S. Units” side of the table, you see that 1 kilogram = 2.20 pounds. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 kilogram)/(2.20 pound) Or(2.20 pound)/(1 kilogram). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out kilograms (that is, kilograms is in the denominator). 7.68 kg * (2.20 pound)/(1 kilogram) = 16.896 lb= 16.9 lb (rounded)
