I am having trouble changing lbs to kilograms to newtons. Can someone please help me?

lbs is normally a force, but sometimes it is treated as a mass. Kilogram is a mass unit, and Newton is a force unit.
It is impossible to go from mass to force unless you are in a gravitational field. At Earth's surface, the gravitational field is 9.8 Newton/kilogram
20kg weighs at Earth Surface...
20*9.8kg
2.2lbs(mass)= 1kg
So 34 lbs (1kg/2.2lbs)=34/2.2 kg
