1. A greengrocer admits his scales are biased , so he sells you 2kg of apples by firstly measuring 1kg with weights on the left and apples on the right, then 1kg with weights on tge right and apples on the left. Who benefits?

I think its you. if we say that one sides weighs 50% more than it seems. In one scenario, he uses 1.5kg of weights and gives you 1.5kg of apples. Ont he other side you have 1 kg of weights and 0.667kg of apples. Add the apple masses together and you get 2.167kg, which is more than the 2kg you were meant to be sold.
