This is an equilibrium problem. I do not know where to start, I usually do not run into this problem but for some reason I cannot start this problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the question: Given a table with four light legs equally spaced around the circumference of a uniform circular top weighting 80N, find the smallest weight that, when placed on the table, will be able to upset it.

Thank you.
