## How to Convert Metric Tonnes to Kilopounds

*Example: How many kilopounds are equivalent to 71.4 metric tonnes?*

As;

1 metric tonnes = 2.20462 kilopounds

71.4 metric tonnes = Y kilopounds

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 71.4 times 2.20462 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.4 * 2.20462 / 1 = 157.409868 kilopounds

Answer is: 157.409868 kilopounds are equivalent to 71.4 metric tonnes.
