ok, I thought that the torque from the mass 'm' would be equal to torque from mass 'M'
The Attempt at a Solution
I wrote down:
m * g * (d/4) = M * g * d
(m/4) = M
m = 4M
Thus, the ratio is 4M : 1 m, which gives answer 1.
However, the solutions say that the answer is 5.
Could anyone please weigh in, and thanks in advance for the help!
