Balance Applet


In this applet, you are given a value for one of three objects. See if you can figure out the values of the other two by using the balance. You can drag objects on and off the trays of the balance. The scales will tip to indicate which tray has the larger value. If you are having trouble understanding how the balance works, learn here. Enter your guesses in the boxes below the shapes. Hit "Try" to see if you deduced the correct values.

Once you think you have mastered this game, go here and we will count the number of moves it takes you to find your answer. The fewer the better!
