    Make an equation

    2x+3x+7x=90

    5x+7x=90

    12x=90

    x=90/12

    Now multiply 90/12 times 2 to get the weight of the small bag-15kg

    Then multiply 90/12 times 3 to get the weight of the median bag-22.5kg

    Lastly multiply 90/12 times 7 toget the weight of the large bag-52.5kg

    Small=15kg

    median=22.5kg

    large=52.5kg
