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.

If you math is correct, you did an excellent job.
