Weighing bales 2000-02-15
From Thinh Than:
You have 5 bales of hay. and they were weighed but they didn't weigh them individually, they were weighed in pairs. The pairs were 1&2, 1&3, 1&4, 1&5, 2&3, 2&4, 2&5, and so on. The weights of the pairs were 80,82,83,84,85,86,87,88,90, and 91. Can you tell me how much the bales weigh individually.
