pretty much about the same as before.

a = weight of a large box

b = weight of a small box.

we know their combined weight is 65 lbs, thus

a + b = 65.we also know that the truck has 60 large ones, and 55 small ones, thus 60*a is the total weight for the large ones and 55*b is the total weight for the small ones, and we know that is a total of 3775,

60a + 55b = 3775.
