Four aliens are on Earth playing a game on a see-saw. There are 4 seats on the sea-saw. The end seats are 2m from the pivot, the middle seats are 1m from the pivot. They want to try to sit on the sea-saw together and make it balance. They can only sit on the seats, nowhere else on the see-saw. Can they do it?
Alien 1: 100N
Alien 2: 200N
Alien 3: 300N
Alien 4: 400N
I don't think so.
The odd-numbered aliens must either both sit in the 1m or 2m seats; but there is no combination that works.
Alien 2 and 3 sit on a side. While Alien 1 and 4 sit on the other side. So yes, these playful aliens can do it!
