Answer

$9\text{ lb}\approx 4,082.33\text{ g}$

Work Step by Step

If we want to convert from pounds to grams, we have to consider the following conversion rate: $1\text{ lb}\approx 453.592\text{ g}$ We multiply both sides by $9$ in order to get the answer to the question: $9\text{ lb}\approx 9\times 453.592\text{ g}\approx 4,082.328\text{ g}$ By rounding it to two decimal places we get: $9\text{ lb}\approx 4,082.33\text{ g}$
