There are a total of 150 weights. Let the number of 1 Kg weights be 'x'. Then the number of 2 Kg weights is '150 - x'. The sum of the weights is 260 Kg. ie [x * 1 + (150 - x) * 2] = 260. By solving this you will get 'x' as 40.

Well this ans is absolutely fine... but i just want to make a slight change i.e. There are a total of 150 weights. Let the number of 1 Kg weights be 'x'. Then the number of 2 Kg weights is '150 - x'. The sum of the weights is 260 Kg. ie [x * 1 + (150 - x) * 2] = 260 x + 300 - 2x = 260 -x + 300 = 260 300 - 260 = x 40 = x

## Some are 1 kg weights and some are 2 kg weights. The sum of the weights is 260.What is the number of 1kg weights?
