    Hiya 165lbs if 11 stone and 11lbs. Think the difference is between english and american conversions.

    there are 14lbs in 1 stone

    14 X 11 stone = 154 lbs
    165 - 154 = 11lbs

    hope this helps x

    11.785714215 is the same as 11st 11lbs

    3/4 of something is 0.75, 11lbs is just over 3/4 of a stone.
