On Friday I posted this puzzle….
John weights much more than 20 stone. He goes to the shops to buy some scales, but the scales there only go up to 20 stone. However, he comes up with a way of accurately weighing himself every day using the scales. What was his plan?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
John buys 2 scales and places one foot on each! Did you solve it? Any other solutions?
