  • question_answer 14)                 Medicine is packed in boxes, each weighing 4 kg 500g. How many such boxes can be loaded in a van which cannot carry beyond 800 kg?

    Answer:

                    Given, van can carry a weight of 800 kg i.e. 800 x 1000 g = 800000 g                           [\[\because \]1 kg = 1000 g] According to the question,                           Weight of one packet = 4 kg 500 g = 4 x 1000 + 500     = 4000 + 500 = 4500 g   \[\begin{align}   & 45)8000(177 \\  & \frac{45}{\begin{align}   & 350 \\  & \frac{315}{\begin{align}   & 350 \\  & \frac{315}{35} \\ \end{align}} \\ \end{align}} \\ \end{align}\] \[\therefore \] Number of packets that can be loaded in the van      \[\text{=}\frac{\text{Total}\,\text{weight}\,\text{strength}\,\text{of}\,\text{the}\,\text{van}}{\text{Weight}\,\text{of}\,\text{one}\,\text{packet}}\]\[=\frac{800000}{4500}=\frac{8000}{45}\] Hence, only 177 boxes can be loaded in the van.
