Aircraft total weight 7,800 lbs

CG station 81.5 in

Aft CG limit 80.5 in

Determine how much cargo must be shifted from the aft cargo compart-ment at station 150 to the forward cargo compartment at station 30 to move the CG to exactly the aft limit

Solution:

__Weight to be shifted__=

__New CG__

Total Weight = Distance weight is shifted

__Weight to be shifted__= 1.0in

7,800 lbs = 120in

Weight to be shifted = 65 lbs

So far I get that we need to move the CG 1 inch forward to bring it within limits, and that we're moving the weight 120in from station 150 to station 130. But I'm still not

*quite*getting how they arrived at 65 lbs. Help?
