Rage Inducing Puzzles #4

Welcome to Rage Inducing Puzzles #4! As previously mentioned, there are a whole ton of points up for grabs. And the answers to last week’s puzzles are…

  1. 000000. Since there are 1000, 100, and 10, you must add six zeros to the end. 12 pts
  2. Separate the weights into three groups of 9 each. Weigh two against each other. If one of them is heavier, then that is the group that the second weighing will be done to. If neither is, then the third group is. Split the mentioned group into 3 groups of 3 and repeat. For the final weighing, weigh the 3 weights individually. 18 pts
  3. Put one chip from the first group, two chips from the second group, etc. up to all ten from the last group, all at once. Subtract 225 grams from the result to find the number of the heavier group. 15 pts
  4. Telephone. 13 pts
  5. 31. 15 pts
