You can place weights on both side of weighing balance and you need to measure all weights between 1 and 1000. For example if you have weights 1 and 3,now you can measure 1,3 and 4 like earlier case, and also you can measure 2,by placing 3 on one side and 1 on the side which contain the substance to be weighed. So question again is how many minimum weights and of what denominations you need to measure all weights from 1kg to 1000kg.

For this answer is 3^0, 3^1, 3^2... That is 1,3,9,27,81,243 and 729

Jack gave John the following challenge: "If you sit down in that chair, I bet I can make you get out of it before I run around the chair three times," he said.

"Aw, that's not fair," John said. "You'll just prick me with a pin or something."

"Nope," Jack said. "I won't touch you, either directly or with any object. If you get out of the chair, it'll be by your own choice."

John thought, accepted the challenge, and lo and behold, Jack won the bet. How did he do it?

Ans. "John sat down in the chair and Jack ran around it 2 times then Jack stopped and said, "I'll be back in a week to run the third time around."
