# Carl is boarding a plane. He has 2 checked bags of equal weight and a backpack that weighs 4 kg. The total weight of Carl's baggage is 35 kg.Write an equation to determine the weight, w, of each of Carl's checked bags.

Answer: Carl has 3 bags in total. One backpack weighs 4 kg and the rest two checking bags have the equal weight. The total weight of 3 bags is given to be 35 kg.

Let the weight of each checking bag is w kg. So we can write:

2 x (Weight of a checking bag) + Weight of Backpack = 35

Using the values, we get:

2w+ 4 = 35

Using this equation we can find the weight of each checking bag, as shown below.

2w = 31

w = 31/2

w = 15.5

Thus, the weight of each checking bag is 15.5 kg

Answer: Weight of each of Carl's checked bags is 15.5 kg.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since we have given that

Number of checked bags of equal weight = 2

Weight of a backpack = 4 kg

Total weight of Carl's baggage = 35 kg

Let the weight of checked bags be 'w'.

According to question,

Hence, Weight of each of Carl's checked bags is 15.5 kg.

### What is a cube?

It is a polygon having six faces.

The volume of a cube is side cube.

We have,

The package contains 1-inch cubes that each hold one ring, so the number of rings in the package is equal to the number of 1-inch cubes that can fit inside the package.

To find the number of 1-inch cubes that fit inside the package, we need to calculate the volume of the package in cubic inches.

The volume of a rectangular solid (such as a package) is given by the formula:

Volume = length x width x height

Plugging in the given values, we get:

Volume = 16 x 10 x 12

= 1,920 cubic inches

Since each 1-inch cube has a volume of 1 cubic inch, the number of cubes that can fit inside the package is equal to the volume of the package in cubic inches.

So,

Number of rings = 1,920

Thus,

The jewelry store received 1,920 rings in the package.
