$6.1 \text{lb" = 2.766913457"kg" ~~ 2.77"kg}$

#### Explanation:

There are $1000$ grams in a kilogram.

$1 \text{lb}$ is defined as exactly $453.59237 \text{g}$

So:

$6.1 \text{lb" = 6.1 xx 453.59237"g" = 2766.913457"g" = 2.766913457"kg}$

If you are calculating by hand and only need an approximation, then you might use $1 \text{lb" ~~ 0.454"kg}$ to find:

$6.1 \text{lb" ~~ 6.1 xx 0.454"kg" ~~ 2.77"kg}$
