    Weights & Balances

    To solve this puzzle, you will need to work out the weights of each box. No two boxes weigh the same as each other, and each box weighs a whole number of kgs, between 0 and 9.

    Now that you know how much each box weighs, you can work out the weight of U, V, W, X, Y and Z.

    Nice puzzle...thanks.

    The only solution where a\neq b\neq c\neq d\neq e\neq f\neq g\neq h\neq j\neq k=
    a=5
    b=2
    c=9
    d=3
    e=7
    f=4
    g=0
    h=1
    j=8
    k=6

    u=0
    v=2
    w=0
    x=9
    y=8
    z=5
