THE SEE-SAW PUZZLE.





(Money Puzzles)

find another child to share the sport with him, had been driven back
upon the ingenious resort of tying a number of bricks to one end of the
plank to balance his weight at the other.
As a matter of fact, he just balanced against sixteen bricks, when these
were fixed to the short end of plank, but if he fixed them to the long
end of plank he only needed eleven as balance.
Now, what was that boy's weight, if a brick weighs equal to a
three-quarter brick and three-quarters of a pound?
