**The average weight of 5 boys is 8w kg. When 2 more children whose weights are 11w kg and 12 w kg respectively joined the group, what is the average weight of the boys now? Solution**

Average weight of 5 boys ----- 8w kg

Total weight of 5 boys ----- 8w kg x 5 = 40w kg

Total weight of 7 boys

(40w + 11w + 12w) kg = 63w kg

Average weight of 7 boys

63w kg divided by 7 = 9w kg

**Answer: 9w kg**
