    My CDC weighed me at 81.75kgs which converted to stones is 12st 9lbs. I needed to change that to pounds for my ticker but if I convert 81.75kgs then its 180lbs but 12st 9lbs is 177lbs :confused::confused::confused: What am I doing wrong when converting these?

    81.75kgs is 12stone 12lbs. Well..that's what my head says:confused:

    Maybe the original calculation of 12st 9lbs is incorrect?

    one kilogram is the same as 2.2 lbs - so 81.75 kg - is actually 179.85 lb = which is the same as 12 stone 8 and a half pound - if you work it on 2.2lb but I am as consufsed as you if I work it as 12 x 14 + 9 = 177lb - Any mathematicians out there!!

    Nah it isn't:p Remember the .85 is .85 of a stone...not 8.5 pounds.

    Hi Hun,

    there are 2.2lbs per kg, so 81.75kg is 179.85lbs - or rounded to 180lbs.

    180lbs divided by 14lbs is 12st 8.5lbs - rounded either way to 12st 8 or 12st 9.... but id go with 12st 8 if i were you :)

    Does that make sense of have i confused you? I think Ive confused myself....

    oh... ive just realised you had got that far... and i see what your saying, im sitting here with my calculator scratching my head lol... let me have a think about it and i'll get back to you pmsl x

    xx

    Go and weigh yourself on some scales that weigh in stones and pounds I say! Even converting stones to pounds does my head in as they don't always tally because of the rounding up so I have to keep it realllly simple, me. Good to see you back!

    81.75kg = 180.23lbs
    180.23 divided by 14 = 12.87

    That's 12 stone and .87 of a stone

    .87 of a stone = 12.18

    Makes 12 stone 12lbs.

    Need a calculator here, but don't know where it is...so only to 2 decimal places. Should be enough though :)

    ah yes, the peeps are right, its .85 of a stone which is actually 12lbs, so 81.75kg is 12st 12lbs - which is 180lbs. x

    No problem :) Very easy to get confused with the way it 'presents'...the .87 just feels like it should be 8.7lbs doesn't it.
