The patient weights 167.2 pounds.

Work Step by Step

We need to convert 76 kilograms to pounds. To do this, we multiply 76 kilograms with the ratio that converts kilograms to pounds. The ratio that converts kilograms to pounds is $\frac{2.2\ pounds}{1\ kilogram}$. So, 76 kilograms $\times$ $\frac{2.2\ pounds}{1\ kilogram}$ = 76 $\times$ 2.2 pounds = 167.2 pounds. So, the patient weights 167.2 pounds.
