Question #18315

a box of 50 identical books weighs 36 kg. how much greater than any book on the carton weighs 5 hg? answer in grams

Expert's answer

The weight of a single book is

W = 36[kg]/50 = 0.72 [kg].

Therefore, 5 kg weighs

5[kg] - 0.72[kg] = 4.28[kg] = 4280[g]

much greater than any book.

W = 36[kg]/50 = 0.72 [kg].

Therefore, 5 kg weighs

5[kg] - 0.72[kg] = 4.28[kg] = 4280[g]

much greater than any book.
