## Price Per Kilogram Formula

The **Price Per Kilogram Formula** is straightforward yet powerful:

**Price Per KG = Total Price / Total Weight in KG**

**Total Price**: The full cost of the item, including any applicable taxes or discounts.**Total Weight in KG**: The mass of the product expressed in kilograms.

Applying this formula to example:

For the **5 kg bag**: $15 / 5 kg = **$3 per kg**

For the **2 kg bag**: $7 / 2 kg = **$3.50 per kg**

This calculation reveals that the larger bag offers better value, saving you **$0.50 per kilogram**.

## How do you calculate price per kg?

Calculating the price per kg involves a few simple steps:

**Identify the total price** of the item.

**Determine the weight** in kilograms. If the weight is in another unit, convert it to kg first.

**Divide the total price by the weight** in kg.

Suppose you’re comparing two brands of coffee:

- Brand A:
**250g for $8.99** - Brand B:
**400g for $12.50**

To calculate the price per kg:

Convert grams to kilograms:

Brand A: 250g =

0.25 kgBrand B: 400g =

0.40 kg

**Apply the formula:**

Brand A: $8.99 / 0.25 kg =

$35.96 per kgBrand B: $12.50 / 0.40 kg =

$31.25 per kg

## How do I convert price per kg to price per lb?

**1 kg ≈ 2.20462 lbs**

To convert price per kg to price per lb, follow these steps:

- Calculate the price per kg using the aforementioned formula.
- Divide the result by 2.20462 to obtain the price per lb.

Suppose you’ve calculated that a certain type of meat costs **$12.50 per kg**, and you want to know the equivalent price per lb.

**Price per lb = $12.50 / 2.20462 ≈ $5.67 per lb**
