$100\text{ kg}\approx 220.46 \text{ lb}$
If want to convert from kilograms to pounds, we have to consider the following conversion rate: $0.4536 \text{ kg}\approx 1 \text{ lb}$ By dividing both sides by $0.4536$, we get: $1\text{ kg}\approx \frac{1}{0.4536} \text{ lb}$ We mulitply both sides by 100 in order to get the answer to the question: $100\text{ kg}\approx \frac{100}{0.4536} \text{ lb}\approx 220.459 \text{ lb}$ By rounding it to two decimal places: $100\text{ kg}\approx 220.46 \text{ lb}$
