1 how much tea in kilograms does the merchant buys
2 whats is the weight in kilograms of tes in each of the original boxes
3 how much has the tea in each packet cost the merchant

note 1kilogram=1000grams
How can you calculate specific values when it's not given any value of b,c,x and w?

General formula can be shown but you are asking for exact values.

Ok.

1) x*w = total grams (total kilograms = total grams/1000)
2) (x*w)/b = total grams per box (total kilograms = total grams/1000)
3) x/c = total cost of one tea packet
