According to the question, Total increase in weight including teacher $\begin{array}{l}\text{= 400 × 35}\\ \text{= 14000 gm}\\ \text{= 14 kg}\end{array}$ If the teacher’s weight has been ’42’ kg so there would have not been any change in average weight. $\begin{array}{l}\text{∴ Teacher’s weight }\\ =42+14\\ =56\ \text{kg}\end{array}$
