    ^Seconded. The problems here are slowly refreshing me from my math rustiness, even if I am not among the people to get the answer first

    Lightbulb new problem

    well since nobody has posted a new problem in a while i'll go ahead with a new one:

    Consider a large jar of custer sugar, an unmarked balance and a 1 gram weight. What is the minimum number of weighing operations by which 1 kg of sugar is measured, and how is that procedure.

    umm... if I remember my physics correctly, it can be done in one go. You just need to place the 1 gram weight 1000 times the distance away from the fulcrum as the distance between the fulcrum and the sugar.

    so... 1Kg|sugar-fulcrum-{1000x}-1g|weight

    or... close enough, you get my meaning.

    ^ I'm pretty sure that it's supposed to "equal" = "balanced".

    In which case it is:

    1
    2
    4
    8
    16
    32
    64
    128
    256
    512
    1024

    minus 16 and 8

    So 15 measurements in total


    At each step the scale is balanced and the amounts are pooled together, with the exception of 8 and 16, which are measured twice with one set put aside, this is then used in 2 more measurements to subtract 8 and 16 from 1024. So, 11 measurements to get to 1024, along with 2 extra measurements of 16 and 8, then another 2 measurements of 16 and 8 at the end (this time taken from the pool of sugar instead of the jar).
