Hey, new member here, and I'm stumped on a physics problem. Two weights are tied onto each end of a piece of rope and set on a table. The rope has a scale on it. The two weights are hanging over the edge of the table - one has Fg of 100 N, the other has Fg of 50 N. What does the scale read? My physics teacher presented this problem the other day, and I've been obsessed with it ever since... but I don't quite know how to achieve an answer. He gave us the hints that the answer is not 50, 75, or 100, but it's still in that range (50 < x < 100). If anybody could just put me on the right track to solving this problem, I'd be much obliged.
