The mechanical advantage of a lever is 0.08; force is not amplified, it is simply diminished; distance, however, is increased:

Work input = Work output

F x d = F x d

F x d = 0.8F x ?(d)

This must be a really basic question, but I'm compelled to ask as I'm somewhat innumerate - what's 'd' multiplied or divided by for the equation to be true?
