Margarit liked to balance things. She balanced 3 pencil sharpeners and 2 one gram blocks witha 100 gram weight and another one gram block. She let x stand for the weight of one pencil sharpener and she claimed that x=30 grams. Was she correct? If not, how much did each pencil sharpener weigh?

NO.
3x = 3 + 100,
x = 103/3 = 34 1/3 Grams.
