    How the hell are you supposed to get a perfect score if you don`t even know what the next weight values are going to be? Goddammit.

    Yup. I`ve played it a few times and the

    1,3,10,27 combo

    seems to work all the time.

    OK the 1,3,10,27 combo doesn`t work for me. I tried it a few times and get numbers like 34 and 19 and 18 that you can`t add up to exactly with the 4 in the combo.

    I`m either not getting the concept, getting screwed by the game, or I`m just a moron.

    Freddy, you realize you can place weights on the left side as well, correct?

    800 is always doable with powers of two, 2^0 through 2^5.

    The 1,3,9,27 combo works.

    You just have to remember you can put weights on both sides of the scales.

    The 1,3,10,27 combo doesn`t work all the time. The problem comes about with numbers like 5, there`s no way to do it. My guess is you just got lucky.

    Here`s how you would go about doing it without looking on forums and without looking at the hint:

    1) Divide your target number into 3 groups, if you have 1 left over, adjust the middle group so it`s 1 bigger, if you have 2 left over, adjust the first and last group:

    The resultant set={1-13,14-27,28-40}

    The top bound of the middle group is one of your numbers: 27

    Now find 3 numbers, which in some combination, form every number of the first group. Your answer is then:
    Group 1: combo of first 3 numbers (comboFirst3)
    Group 2: (upper bound for mid) - (comboFirst3)
    Group 3: (upper bound for mid) + (comboFirst3)

    So for using 27 as your anchor, any 3 numbers that can add up to any number between 1-13 works.
    1,3,9 works

    how come everyone is getting all technical?
    all you do is take the same number on the side to balance it out.
