  1. A simple machine is a pully, lever, wheel and axle, inclined plane. You could use a ramp and roll a marble down it. That's one simple machine. Then the marble can roll into a wheel and turn it which is another simple machine. Lastly, the wheel could push down a lever which could make something else happen, which is the third inclined plane.
