there are 10 gold coins from that 1 is a counterfeit we don’t know if the fake one is heavier or lighter than the gold coins and you get only 3 readings on the scale to solve it.
P.S. all the coins look identical. the only difference is the fake one is either heavier or lighter than the original. and all the other 9 original coins weigh the same!
its not 12 its 10 (the 12 i read on google the one i was asked is 12!!)
its not 12 its 10 (the 12 i read on google the one i was asked is 10!! IM SURE!!!)
