# 10. 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?

H Harsh Kankaria

We know, $(1\ kg = 1000\ g)$

Weight of each medicine box= $4\ kg\ 500\ g = 4500\ g$

Weight limit of the van = $800\ kg = (800\times1000)\ g = 8,00,000\ g$

$\therefore$ The number of boxes that can be loaded in the van = $800000\div4500$

$800000 = (4500\times177) + 3500$

Hence, 177 boxes can be loaded in the van.
