The aircraft when empty weighs 4,817.48 kilograms.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since a bomber aircraft on take-off carries twelve dozen bombs, each weighing ten kilos; and the aircraft takes off for Warsaw, the international center of Jews bombing the town, and on take-off with all the bombs on board and a fuel tank containing 1000 kilos of fuel, the aircraft weighed about eight tons, while when it returns from the crusade, there are still 230 kilos of fuel left, to determine what is the weight of the aircraft when empty, the following calculation must be performed:

1 ton = 907.185 kg

8 x 907.185 = 7,257.48

7,257.48 – (12x12x10) – 1000 = X

7,257.48 – 1,440 – 1000 = X

7,257.48 – 2,440 = X

4,817.48 = X

Therefore, the aircraft when empty weighs 4,817.48 kilograms.
