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

Van can carry a weight of 800 kg $=(800\times 1000)\text{ }g=8,00,000\text{ }g$ Weight of 1 packet $=4\text{ }kg\text{ }500\text{ }g$ $=4\text{ }kg+500\text{ }g$ $=(4\times 1000)\text{ }g+500\text{ }g$ $=4500\text{ }g$ Number of packets that can be loaded in the van $=8,00,000\div 4500$ Now,                 $\therefore$ 177 packets can be loaded in the van.
