      884.1 pounds

    • B.

      857.1 pounds

    • C.

      841.1 pounds

    Correct Answer
    A. 884.1 pounds
    Explanation
    Based on the given information, the maximum allowable weight that may be carried on a pallet can be calculated by multiplying the floor load limit by the area of the pallet. The area of the pallet can be calculated by multiplying its dimensions (24.6 inches and 68.7 inches). Therefore, the calculation would be: 24.6 inches * 68.7 inches = 1690.02 square inches. Then, multiplying the floor load limit (79 lb/sq ft) by the area (1690.02 square inches) gives us 133,310.58 lb. However, we need to subtract the weight of the pallet (43 lb) and the tiedown devices (27 lb) from this total. Therefore, the maximum allowable weight is 133,310.58 lb - 43 lb - 27 lb = 133,240.58 lb, which is approximately 884.1 pounds.

    • C.

      786.5 pounds.

    Correct Answer
    C. 786.5 pounds.
    Explanation
    The maximum allowable weight that may be carried on a pallet can be calculated by finding the area of the pallet and multiplying it by the floor load limit. The area of the pallet is 33.5 inches multiplied by 48.5 inches, which equals 1625.75 square inches. Multiplying this by the floor load limit of 76 lb/sq ft gives us a maximum weight of 123,610 lb. However, we also need to consider the weight of the pallet itself (44 lb) and the tiedown devices (27 lb). Subtracting these weights from the maximum weight gives us a final maximum allowable weight of 123,610 lb - 44 lb - 27 lb = 123,539 lb, which is approximately 786.5 pounds.

    • B.

      1,302.8 pounds.

    • C.

      1,347.8 pounds

    Correct Answer
    B. 1,302.8 pounds.
    Explanation
    The maximum allowable weight that may be carried on a pallet can be determined by calculating the floor load limit. The floor load limit is given as 112 lb/sq ft. To find the maximum weight, we need to calculate the area of the pallet. The dimensions of the pallet are given as 36.5 X 48.5 inches. Converting the dimensions to feet, we get 3.04 ft X 4.04 ft. Multiplying these dimensions, we get an area of 12.28 sq ft. Multiplying the area by the floor load limit, we get 1,376.96 lb. However, we need to subtract the weight of the pallet and tiedown devices, which is 45 lb + 29 lb = 74 lb. Subtracting this weight from the calculated weight, we get 1,376.96 lb - 74 lb = 1,302.96 lb. Therefore, the correct answer is 1,302.8 pounds.
