    A kg is about 2.2 pounds. Here are the other relations.

    The metric system has prefix modifiers that are powers of 10.

    A kilogram is 1000 grams
    A hectogram is 100 grams
    A decagram is 10 grams
    A gram is the basic unit of mass
    A decigram is 1/10 gram
    A centigram is 1/100 gram
    A milligram is 1/1000 gram

    I hope this helps you come to your own answers. Thanks for asking.
