Solution(By Apex Team)

Let the five persons be A, B, C, D, E
According to the question,
$\begin{aligned}&=\frac{A+B+C+D+E}{5}=38\mathrm{~kg}\\
&=\mathrm{A}+\mathrm{B}+\mathrm{C}+\mathrm{D}+\mathrm{E}=190\mathrm{~kg}\ldots..(\mathrm{i})\\
&\frac{5\text{ persons }+\text{ Boat }}{6}=52\\
&5\text{ persons }+\text{ Boat }=312\mathrm{~kg}\ldots..\left(ii\right)\end{aligned}$
∴ Boat’s weight
= 312 – 190 = 122 kg
