On Monday, a person mailed 8 packages weighing an average (arithmetic mean) of pounds, and on Tuesday, 4 packages weighing an average of pounds. What was the average weight, in pounds, of all the packages the person mailed on both days?

(A) 13 1/3

(B) 13 13/16

(C) 15 1/2

(D) 15 15/16

(E) 16 1/2

I could find the result of entire number but I still don’t get where this fraction come from!
I have to use the weighted average calculation right?
