    Exclamation [Urgent!] Weights Question... (kg - Tonnes)

    Basically its rather simple to exmplain, getting the answer is the hard part!!! but i do request urgent help!

    I know the following information:

    The total number of Pallets = 572
    The weight of the pallet = 18 kg /each

    There is 90,428 boxes
    The weight of a box = 20g /box

    So my question is,
    From the following information how can i work out in tonnes how much cardboard (boxes) have been used?!?


    But the tricky part is, i know the answer is a rounded number of 3!

    I need to know how we got to that answer...


    Please help me. Its Friday and im Blonde.. so things aint going too well!

    Thank you,

    Hmm ok.

    Question: The tonnes of paper (cardboard) that has been used is 3 tonnes (rounded down). Using the following information below, how can you acheive this answer.

    Total Volume 1,897,500
    Ave. Pallet Volume 30
    Number of Pallets 572
    Number of Boxes 90,428


    TYPE Average Weight

    Boxes 20 g / Box
    Pallets 18 Kgs each (45k/Pallet)
    Wrap 1 Kg / Pallet



    This is the exact thing.
