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

Given that:

Medicines are packed in boxes. One box weighs 4kg 500g.

We need to find many the number of boxes that can be loaded in a can that cannot carry beyond 800kg.

Solution:

The weight of one box = 4 kg 500 g = 4 × 1000 g + 500 g = 4500 g   { As we know that 1kg = 1000g}

Maximum load can be loaded in can = 800 kg = 800 × 1000 g = 800000 g

Hence total weight=Maximum load can be loaded in can =800000 g

Number of boxes = Total weight / Weight of each box

Number of boxes = 800000/4500 = 177

Number of boxes = 177
Therefore, 177 boxes can be loaded in a can that cannot carry beyond 800kg.
