They dont use lbs as measurement there. And the US doesnt use KG... you have to convert.

So if you ask someone in germany how much 65kg is converted to lbs. they arent going to divide by 0.500kgram(or a "metric" pound lol)
they will multiply by 2.2 or divide by 0.454 as defined from SI unit conversion factors.



Quote:
Meanwhile, only a few Americans know that the legal definitions of the English customary units are actually based on metric units. The U. S. and British governments have agreed that a yard equals exactly 0.9144 meter and an avoirdupois pound equals exactly 0.453 592 37 kilograms. In this way, all the units of measurement Americans use every day are based on the standards of the metric system. Since 1875, in fact, the United States has subscribed to the International System of Weights and Measures, the official version of the metric system
