given elephant weighs 2800 pounds on Planet​ A
let elephant's weight on Planet B be x
given ratio of the weight of an object on Planet A to the weight of the same object on Planet B is 100 to 3.
so $\frac{2800}{x}=\frac{100}{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x=3\cdot \frac{2800}{100}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x=84$
therefore elephant's weight on Planet B is 84.
