Logic Problem
My mother in law has just phoned me with my neice's homework and I am sitting here trying to work it out but I just can't think where to start!!! 1 Gold Chain = 2 Silver Chain 3 Gold Chains + 1 Silver Chain = 1162 gms Question  How much does a gold chain weigh and how much does a silver chain weigh? Call me thicko, call me stupid but what's the friggin' answer and how do you work it out? :nerd: TRINITY JEWELLERY  DESIGNS THAT STAND OUT

1162 divided by 3.5 = 332, so
1 gold chain = 332 one silver chain = 166 Bollox to potplants

Logic Problem
Well, I think you have to say that 3 gold chains = 6 silver chains, plus the one silver chain = 7 silver chains.
Divide the weight by 7 and then you get the weight for one silver chain? Then multiply that by 2. 1 silver chain = 166 g 1 gold chain = 332 g Oh, I see Floopy has beaten me to it  well done Floops
