I bought a really cheap scale online on Ebay but I don't know how to to read it.
Can anyone explain what each line means?

What are the inside numbers? And the outside numbers... which I'm guessing are the pounds.
Wow.. can't believe I don't understand the scale.
 
The outside is in kilograms and the inside is in pounds.
 
So no ounces?

I have a Guinea Pig that was on the inner 3...
That's 3 kilos, then?
 
There are 16 ounces in a pound. The 8 that is in between each pound represents half a pound or 8 ounces. If your pig is weighing 3 on the inner scale, that represents 3 pounds = 48 ounces. So, 1 ounce would equal 28 grams. Therefore, so your pig weighs 1344 grams. I go by grams when I weigh my pig.
 
Woops! I have "Therefore, so...". Just ignore the "so" in that sentence.

Okay so if the inner 3 is three pounds, that's the outer 3? Sorry, I'm really clueless with simple math.
 
The inner 3 is pounds, the outer 3 is kilograms.
 
Got it. I should have just got a digital. lol. thank you.
 
No worries :) I hope I helped. I am terrible at explaining things over the internet!!
 
Thats why I miss living in CA. I don't have a Costco anywhere near where I live now. Stinks! I looked at where the closest one is and it's in another state.

I'm just not good with Kilograms but it'll re-weigh them all tomorrow and see what I get.
 
It's unlimited. As many as you want.
