# 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?

**Solution:**

We will be using the concept of whole numbers and unit conversion to solve the given problem.

Weight of one box = 4 kg 500 g = 4 × 1000 + 500 = 4500 g

Maximum weight that the van can carry = 800 kg = 800 × 1000 = 800000 g

Total number of boxes that can be loaded in the van = Maximum weight that the van can carry / Weight of one box

⇒ 800000 / 4500 ≈ 177 boxes

Thus, 177 boxes can be loaded into the van.
