This is the example i was given:

The oranges in a box have a mass of 4680 gm.If the average mass of an orange is 97.5gm, find the number of oranges in the box.

Total mass = average mass of an orange x number of oranges in the box.

Therefore the number of oranges in the box= 4680/97.5 = 48 oranges.

So i was trying to use this to solve the problem i was given.
