Initially, potatoes have 99% water by weight ; which means they have 1% solid non-water content.

1% of 100 kg = 1 kg

Now even when they dehydrate,this 1kg solid mass remains constant.

It is given that finally, 98% is water by weight , which implies that 2% is non-water solid.

This means 2% of total weight = 1 kg

Total weight *2/100 = 1 kg

Therefore, total weight finally = 50 kg.
