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.
