Re: Weighings  A sack of flour4300: For 4200 we just take a 300 instead of the 200 in the new last line.

Re: Weighings  A sack of flourI had done the same mistake when I first fell onto this puzzle. I don't think we (=you) are completely the wrong way. I think the only constraint is that we cannot use each bag (weight) more than once in the same weighing. #57 20120416 09:57:20
