You must find the fake in a lot of 9 diamonds. You know it’s lighter than the others. You have a balance scale, and you are allowed only two weighs.
What is the solution to find the fake diamond among the 9?
We randomly choose 3 diamonds that we put on each side of the scale.
– If all 6 are true, the scale lines up, so we are left with 3 diamonds.
– If the scale tilts on one side, we still have the three on the lighter side.
With the remaining three, we just have to put one on each side:
– If the scales line up, the rest is the wrong one.
– Otherwise the lightest one will be the wrong one.

Switch on switch 1 and leave it on for 5 minutes. Do not touch switch 2. And finally we turn on switch 3 and leave it on. We go into the room where the three light bulbs are.
