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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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