less than 75 lbs = 60%
at least 25 lbs = 80%
25 lbs or less than 25 lbs = 20% which equivalant = 48 packages
so 100% = 240

at least 25 lbs but less than 75 lbs = 40%
no of packages that weigh at least 25 lbs but less than 75 lbs = 40% of 240 = 96.

(8/10)x = 48 + (6/10)x Solve for x
x=240

(6/10)240 = 144 Total packages that weigh less than 75 pounds

We know 48 packages weigh less than 25 pounds so subtract those from 144. 144-48=96 packages
