# What is the weight of Each of the 50 Boxes? If

50 boxes of equal weight are loaded on a carryvan. 5 more boxes weighing 105 kg each were later added, making the average weight of all 55 boxes as 95 kg. The weight of each of the 50 boxes initially loaded is

- 98 kg
- 94 kg
- 95 kg
- 92 kg

**Answer: (2) 94kg**

**Explanation:-**

Number of boxes are loaded on carry van = 50

5 more boxes weighting = 105 Kg each

Total weight of 5 boxes = 105 x 5 = 525 kg

The average weight of 55 boxes = 95kg

Total weight of 55 boxes = 95 x 55 = 5225 kg

Therefore, the weight of 50 boxes = 5225 – 525 = 4700kg

The average weight of each box = 4700/50

= 94 kg

Hence, the answer is (2) 94 kg.
