# Ssimple maths question help watch

1. I am stuck at this question. Can someone help me please

The question is down below:

A patient weighs 198 pounds and wants to lose 5kg. If one kilogram is
approximately 2.2 pounds, what would the patient’s new weight be, in
pounds, if they lost the desired amount?

198/2.2=90?
2. 198-11.02

5kg = 11.0231
3. (Original post by LoneSurvivor)
198-11.02

5kg = 11.0231
??
4. 5 kilograms = 5x2.2 = 11 pounds

new weight = 198 - 11 = 187 pounds
