My CDC weighed me at 81.75kgs which converted to stones is 12st 9lbs.
81.75kgs is 12stone 12lbs. Well..that's what my head says

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 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

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.
