put 6 on one side of the balance, 6 on the other. whichever side is lighter, split them into 3 and 3 and put 3 on either side, then from the lighter side again weight two of the 3 you have left. if they are the same, its the other one. if they are different weights then the lighter one is the counterfeit!
