How to convert mg to lbs: The mg to lbs formula

The formula for converting milligrams (mg\text{mg}) to pounds (lb\text{lb}) is simple:

1 mg=0.000002205 lb1\ \text{mg} = 0.000002205\ \text{lb}

So, if we have x mgx\ \text{mg}, we have (0.000002205x) lb(0.000002205\cdot x)\ \text{lb}.

We can invert the equation to also obtain the formula for converting backward, i.e. the lbs to mg formula:

1 lb=453, ⁣592.37 mg1\ \text{lb} = 453,\!592.37\ \text{mg}

So, if we have y lby\ \text{lb}, we have (453, ⁣592.37y) mg(453,\!592.37\cdot y)\ \text{mg}.

And there we have it: how to convert milligrams to pounds!
