Leah liked to balance objects she found around the house using the science kit she got for Christmas. She found that 3 identical apples and a 5gram weight exactly balanced a 50gram weight. Leah said she could tell how much each apple weighed by solving the equation 3a+5=50. Prove Leah was correct by finding the weight of 1 apple.
