Puzzle : Identical Balls

There are 8 identical balls. In that one of the ball is overweight. There are only two chances to weigh in the weighing machine. How to find the overweight ball?

Answer

First weigh 3 against 3 balls. If the ball contains among these six balls, then take the three balls which weighed over, and weigh the ball 1 against 1. If the balls are not equal and any one of the ball weighs more, that is the overweight ball, else the one among the three which is not weighed is the ball. If the 3 against 3 balls were equal, then weigh the 2 balls, then the overweight ball will be found.

A) 93714 B) 42789
C) 36671 D) 93747
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 93747

Explanation:

From the hints,

Only two options for 1st and 2nd digits => 4,2 and 9,3 since it is single digits

Sum of second and third digit  = 10 

If 2 => 3rd digit = 8

If 3 => 3rd digit = 7

4th digit = 2nd digit + 1 => (2+1 =3) or (3+1 = 4)

Sum of all digits = 30

Let 5th digit be x

=> 1st possibility = 4 + 2 + 8 + 3 + x = 30 => x = 13 (Not possible since it has 2 digits)

=> 2nd possibility = 9 + 3 + 7 + 4 + x = 30 => x = 7

Therefore, the PIN is 93747
