Solution :

 Let the average weight of a group $=x$

$\therefore$ Total weight of 30 persons $=30 x$

Let the weight of new person $=y$

$\therefore$ From the quetions,

$$

\begin{aligned}

& 30 x-40+y=30(x-1) \\

\Rightarrow & 30 x-40+y=30 x-30 \\

\Rightarrow & y=40-30 \\

\therefore & y=10 \mathrm{~kg} ; \text { Ans. }

\end{aligned}

$$

 

Trick : The age of new person
$$
=40+30
$$
[New average - Old average]
$$
=40+30 \times(-1)=10 \mathrm{~kg} ; \text { Ans. }
$$
