Ive been working on this problem for extra credit in one of my classes all morning and its driving me nuts. The problem is "you are given 12 pennies, they all weight exactly the same except one, your a given a balance scale and need to figure out if the penny that is different is lighter or heavier than the rest, and you can only use the scale three times" I hope someone can help me out on this one.

Thanks
