if a 120-g mass is placed at the 25-cm mark and a 25-g mass at the 10-cm mark, where should a 500-g mass be placed to balance the system?

    Where it the fulcrum? I assume this is a beam blance resting on some sort of a fulcrum support

    The total moment about the fulcrum must be zero to achieve balance
