Enter the total weight (lb) and the total number of items into the Item Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Item Weight.

## Item Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Item Weight.

IW = TW / I

Variables:

- IW is the Item Weight (lb)
- TW is the total weight (lb)
- I is the total number of items

To calculate the item weight, divide the total weight by the total number of items.

## How to Calculate Item Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Item Weight.

- First, determine the total weight (lb).
- Next, determine the total number of items.
- Next, gather the formula from above = IW = TW / #I.
- Finally, calculate the Item Weight.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total weight (lb) = 300

total number of items = 230

IW = TW / #I** **= ?
