3.85 kg

since, wt. of potatoes= wt. of total vegetables- (wt. of tomatoes + wt. of onions)

since, wt. of potatoes= wt. of total vegetables- (wt. of tomatoes + wt. of onions)

Total weight = 10kg

Weight of onions = 3.5 kg

Weight of tomatoes = 2.075kg

Let weight of potato be x

⇒ 3.5 + 2.075 + x = 10

⇒ 5.575 + x = 10

⇒ x = 10 - 5.575

⇒ x = 4.425

∴ x = 4kg 425g

Therefore weight of potatoes = 4kg425g
