**drwls**, Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 10:30pmI am curious what college considers this to be college level.

The product of mass and distance from the fulcrum is the same on both sides, if the seesaw is balanced.

Thus 31 * 3.6 = 78 * X

Solve for X, which will be Arthur's distance in meters.

**Alexis**, Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 11:07pmSo would it be 78*3.6

**drwls**, Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 11:20pmNo. The answer is

X = (31*3.6)/78 = 1.43 meters
