Abstract: We derive ``exact order'' of the function

$\displaystyle \sum\limits_{k \leq \sqrt x } {{k^\rho }{{\min }^\beta }\left( {\frac{{\sqrt x }}{k},\frac{1}{{{P_k}}}} \right)}.$

Here $ \rho $ and $ \beta $ are nonnegative real numbers and, for given real $ {\delta _1},{\delta _2}, \cdots ,{\delta _r},{P_k} = {\max _j}\langle k{\delta _j}\rangle $ where $ \langle t\rangle $, for real t, denotes distance of t from the nearest integer. Using our results, we obtain the solution of the basic problem in the theory of lattice points with weight in rational many-dimensional ellipsoids.
