If a 100-g mass was placed at the 25-cm mark, and a 20-g mass at the 10-cm mark, where should a 500-g mass be placed to balance the system?

1. 100*(25- distance from fulcrum) + 20*(40- distance from fulcrum)= 500(x- distance from fulcrum)

3300=500x Solve for x. then add to 50 because it's in the opposite side of the fulcrum.

At the 50.66 cm mark the 500g mass should be placed

3. the answer should be 56.6 cm because 3300/500 is 6.6.

4. Statisticly I think the answer is either 8===D or 69 or 666

5. Ya know, I think my calculations were slightly off. You should still copy my answers though. Because if 666=666, then 69= Mushroom on the rocks which is 8===D
