Bonjour Shekhar,

The spelling of 'repesons' is correct. It is a derivative of the verb 'peser'. The prefix re- is added to mean 'again' -> repeser = to weigh again

A lot of other French verbs have the same equivalent:

mesurer = to measure -> remesurer to remeasure

payer = to pay -> repayer to pay again for [sth]

décorer = to decorate -> redécorerto redecorate 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
