A meter stick is balanced at the 50.cm mark. You tie a 25.N weight at the 30.cm mark. Where should a 30.N weight be placed so the meter stick will be balanced?

  1. 25*30 = 30*d

  2. 50 - 30 = 20
    25 / 30 * 20 = 16.7 cm
    50 + 16.7 = 66.7 cm mark

  3. Oops.
    25(50-30) = 30(d-50)
    d = 200/3 = 66.7
