How Many Such Boxes Can Be Loaded in a Van Which Cannot Carry Beyond 800kg


Question: 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?

The question is based on the concept of division.

Answer: 177 such boxes can be loaded into the van.

Let's solve the problem.

Explanation:

The weight of each box = 4kg 500g = 4 x 1000 + 500 = 4000 + 500 = 4500 g

The maximum load that van can carry = 800kg = 800 x 1000 = 8,00,000 g

So, the total number of boxes = Total weight/weight of each box = 8,00,000 / 4500 = 177.78

Therefore, the maximum number of boxes that the van can carry is 177.

Thus, 177 such boxes can be loaded into the van.
