Answer:

15 ounces

Step-by-step explanation:

Each box contains 4 toys; a 5-ounce truck and three bags of marbles. The bags of marbles are all identical. How much does each bag of marbles weigh?

We need the total weight of the box. This is not given in the question, hence:

Let us assume

The total weight of the = 50 ounces

A 5-ounce truck and three bags of marbles.

Let the weight of one bag of marble = x

Hence,

5 ounces +3x = 50 ounces

3x = 50 ounces – 5 ounces

3x = 45 ounces

x = 45 ounces/3

x = 15 ounces

Therefore, the weight of each bag of marble is 15 ounces
