One kilogram is 2.204622622 pounds (avoirdupois), so:

24.1 x 2.204622622 = 53.13140519 lbs

or 53 lbs, 2 oz.

Empirical = Lbs
Metric = Kg
Weird English thing = Stone

Takes a fortnight to figure out for some.

Multiply by 2.2 (or double it and add 10%) and you'll get 53 pounds, give or
take part of an ounce.

If you're wondering about that big sack of BC Bud stashed in the attic,
wonder no more: it's worth about the same as your house.
