The sequence here is..

The implication in the question is to find out how much of the weight is gold, so do this using the fraction given.

Convert the weight to mass using F=ma and I would use a=9.8 m s^-2 unless your question/text book has a different value.

Now convert the mass to volume using density=mass/volume. The density of gold you will need to get from a data book, wikipedia, or maybe it is in the question/text book.
