Hi All

Not sure of this is the appropriate forum...

I would appreciate help, I am repeatedly getting what look like very simple questions on load/CG wrong.

eg

What is the maximum allowable weight that may be carried on a pallet which has the dimensions of 35.5 x 48.5 inches

Floor load limit -76 lbs/sq ft

pallet weight 44 lb

tie downs 27lb

This looks so simple. My thinking:

pallet surface area = 11.95 sq ft

so max allowable weight 76 x 11.95 = 908.7lbs

subtract weight of pallet and tie-downs to give 837.7lbs

But the correct answer appears to be 786.5 ?

What am I missing?

Thanks
