Convert troy to pound

Learn how to convert 1 troy to pound step by step.

Calculation Breakdown

Set up the equation
$$1.0\left(troy\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(pound\right)$$
Define the base values of the selected units in relation to the SI unit $$\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)$$
$$\text{Left side: 1.0 } \left(troy\right) = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 0.3732417216\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)} = {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 0.3732417216\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}$$
$$\text{Right side: 1.0 } \left(pound\right) = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3732417216\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)} = {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3732417216\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}$$
Insert known values into the conversion equation to determine $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$$1.0\left(troy\right)={\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}\left(pound\right)$$
$$\text{Insert known values } =>$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 0.3732417216} \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3732417216}} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} kilo}gram\right)}$$
$$\text{Or}$$
$$1.0 \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 0.3732417216} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3732417216} \cdot {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}$$
$$\text{Cancel SI units}$$
$$1.0 \times {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} 0.3732417216} \cdot {\color{rgb(89,182,91)} \cancel{\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} 0.3732417216} \times {\color{rgb(125,164,120)} \cancel{\left({\color{rgb(230,179,255)} k}g\right)}}$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$0.3732417216 = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times 0.3732417216$$
Cancel factors on both sides
$$\text{Cancel factors}$$
$${\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{0.3732417216}} = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} \times {\color{rgb(255,204,153)} \cancel{0.3732417216}}$$
$$\text{Simplify}$$
$$1.0 = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
Switch sides
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = 1.0$$
Solve $${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x}$$
$${\color{rgb(20,165,174)} x} = 1$$
$$\text{Conversion Equation}$$
$$1.0\left(troy\right) = {\color{rgb(20,165,174)} 1}\left(pound\right)$$
