Hi again MHF,

I'm a bit confused so any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot. :-)

"Describe how the jester must place the mystery bags and lead weights so that the equation will be a representation of the situation.

Then find the weight of the mystery bag."

a. 5M + 24 = 51 + 2M

b. 43M + 37 = 56M + 24

c. 12M + 15 = 5M + 62
