(a) To convert kilogram to pounds, note that  

1 kg = 2.2046 lb

Using this conversion factor, we have:

` `

`3.2_( kg) * (2.2046 _(lb))/(1_(kg)) = 7.0547` lb  

Hence, 3.2 kg=7.0547 lb .


(b) To convert kilometer to meter, note that the prefix kilo means 1000. This means that,

1 km = 1000 m

So we have:

`512_(km) * (1000_m)/(1_(km)) = 512000` m

Thus, 512 km = 512000 m.

 (c) The conversion factor for meter `harr` yard is:

1 yd = 0.9144 m

We then have,

` 3.1_m * (1_(yd))/(0.9144_m) = 3.3902` yd

Thus, 3.1 m = 3.3902 yd .
