Maria stood on two scales at the same time. The scale on the right read 43 pounds, and the scale on the left read 60 pounds. If she balances her weight equally on both scales, how much will each scale read?

Kate,
I would imagine it would read the average of the two weights: (60+43)/2 = 103/2=51.5 pounds.
