If 28% of the objects in a box weighed 45 gm each and 72% of the objects in a box weighed 55 gm each, what is the average weight of the object.

-----

The Average Weight of the Object = Total Weight / Total No. of Objects

Total No objects 45gm => 45/x = 0.28 => x = 161

Total No objects 55gm => 55/x = 0.72 => x = 76

Is this even right??

I would really appreciate it if any one could give me some hint on how to solve it??
