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

Volume is the amount of space that something contains or fills.

## Answer: Medicine is packed in boxes, each weighing 4 kg 500 g. 177 such boxes can be loaded in a van which cannot carry beyond 800 kg.

Let's solve the problem using the concept of volume.

**Explanation:**

Weight of each box = 4 kg 500 g = 4.5 kg

The capacity of the van to carry weight = 800 kg

Number of boxes = Total capacity / Weight of each box

Number of boxes = 800/4.5 = 177.7

But the number of boxes cannot be in decimal form.

Hence, the van can carry 177 boxes.

### Thus, the van can carry 177 boxes.
