Detailed Explanation :

Given

1. Average weight of 16 boys = 50.25 kg
2. The average weight of remaining 8 boys = 45.15 kg

To find:  The Average weight of all the boys in the class

Solution: Step by Step

Step 1: Find the total weight of the 16 boys

Total weight of 16 boys = Average weight of 16 boys * Number of boys

= 50.25 kg * 16

= 804 kg

Step 2: Find the total weight of the remaining 8 boys

Total weight of 8 boys = Average weight of 8 boys * Number of boys

= 45.15 kg * 8

= 361.2 kg

Step 3: Find the total weight of all the boys

Total weight of all the boys = Total weight of 16 boys + Total weight of 8 boys

= 804 kg + 361.2 kg

= 1165.2 kg

Step 4: Find the average weight of all the boys

Average weight of all the boys = Total weight of all the boys / Total number of boys

= 1165.2 kg / 24 boys

= 48.55 kg (rounded off to two decimal places)

Therefore, the average weight of all the boys in the class is 48.55 kg.
