How much does a stone weigh?  When someone talks about a stone in terms of weight they are referring to a unit of measure still commonly used used in the UK that is equal to 14 pounds.

  1. Use the conversion factor we already have: 1 stone (of mass) is equal to 14 pounds.
  2. Apply the conversion factor by multiplying the mass given in stones (st) by 14, simple right?

See this example:

Convert 13 stones to pounds

Convert 13 stones to pounds

  1. Setup:  Convert 13 stones to pounds
  2. Conversion factor: 14 (as in 14 pounts in one stone)
  3. Therefore: 13 x 14 = 182 pounds in 13 stone!
