The first step is to see how much one box weighs.

550 widgets x 1 oz = 550 oz (per box)

Now we take the weight of that one box and multiply it to see how much a skid weighs.

550 oz x 36 boxes = 19,800 oz (per skid)

Since the questions calls for pounds not ounces, we must now convert the answer. (Remember that 1 lb = 16 oz.)

19,800 / 16 = 1,237.5 lbs
