Re: Weighings  A sack of flourI just wantto know how in the world do you plan on getting 4900 and 5100?

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourhi Stefy, Previous post: Yes, you are of course correct. It was that word 'easily' that put me off. So that makes it: Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #28 20120415 19:31:27
Re: Weighings  A sack of flour
Yes, because the problem says the grocer only sells in multiples of 100 grams. #29 20120415 19:39:33

Why not also Last edited by anna_gg (20120415 19:59:45) #31 20120415 19:46:26
Re: Weighings  A sack of flourYes to all under 4000 but not 9500, 9700, 9800, 9900, 10000. I don't think you can use that flour twice. and their complements. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #32 20120415 20:15:30
Re: Weighings  A sack of flourThese are "possible" alternative weighings, so why not use them? #33 20120415 20:57:04
Re: Weighings  A sack of flourhi anna_gg
Post #27 gives the best list so far with contributions from several sources. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #34 20120415 22:38:26

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourAnd as for the 4900 and 5100 how do you know when you have put the 4900 on one side?

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourYes, sorry haven't had time to rewrite the list as I've been helping zetafunc. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #39 20120416 02:58:30

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourHere 600_2,3 means that 600 grams was aquired between 2nd and 3rd measuring.

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourOh that's very clever. the list of 'not yet done' values is getting smaller and smaller. I wonder if it will shrink all the way down to the empty set.

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourI know: I'll just write the list of 'not yet done'. It'll be easier. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #44 20120416 06:15:32
Re: Weighings  A sack of flour4800: And as we know: 4800=2500+2300.

Re: Weighings  A sack of flour4500: Now we add 2000 and 2500 to get 4500.

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourYou could do this bit yourself you know! arhhrr! But then, who is going to tell you how impressive that is! Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #49 20120416 06:34:11
Re: Weighings  A sack of flourIt is not impressive at all. And the list is helping me. The typing of that would create additional struggles because I am on my phone.
