klogg weighs 170 lb. He is loading a freight elevator with identical 69-pound boxes. The elevator can carry no more then 2000lb. If klogg rides up with the boxes how many boxes can be loaded on the elevator?

2,000 - 170 = 1830 1830/69 = ?

I did what mrs sue posted and i got a desmo answer.. is that right?

You probably got this answer: 26.5217391 We assume he can't divide boxes, so we drop the numbers after the decimal point. He can carry 26 boxes.
