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

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

The 1,3,9,27 combo works.

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