\[\mathsf{W = mg}\]So, \(\mathsf{50 = 5 \times 10 }\)

I have normally seen in questions that they assume a person's mass to be \(60\) kg. So would their weight be \(600\) kg? Impossibru!

You should say weight is 50 newtons, and it also depends on the gravity, whether you're on earth or mars etc.

weight is in newtons, they should've written it 600 N, not 600 kg, lol

So my weight is \(50 ~ \rm kg ~ ms^{-2}\), correct?

@rutvi There's a misconception on the word "weight" used in our daily lives and "weight" in physics. In physics weight is in newtons and in normal situation we use weight as in kilograms, rather than saying mass.
