When Sebastian weighed his balikbayan box,its weight was 34 kg.When he got to the airport , he found out that the airline charged $5 for each lb in excess

of the free baggage allowance of 50 lb . How much will Sebastian pay for the excess weight? with solution :)


The Brainliest Answer!

We have the conversion of kg=lb as 1kg=2.2lbs


Converting the weight of the box to pounds you'll have

34kg( \frac{2.2lb}{1kg} ) = 74.8lbs


Baggage allowance is 50 lb so the excess will be:

74.8lb - 50lb = 24.8lb


payment for the excess will be:

24.8lb ($5) = $124
