Abstract

Look at the puzzle in Figure 1, which shows the weights of different colored balls. Can you tell whether the yellow ball or the purple ball is heavier? The balls are placed on a white balance to see which one is heavier. The green ball is heavier than the yellow ball, and the purple ball is heavier than the green ball. So, the purple ball must be heavier than the yellow one!
