Pumpkins 2 (Posted on 2005-09-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Five pumpkins are weighed two at a time in all possible combinations, similar to the first pumpkins puzzle. The results of the weighings gives nine different values: 52, 56, 60, 68, 72, 76, 80, 84, and 88. One of the values was repeated, but which value was not written down.
Find out the weights of the pumpkins and which value is the repeat.
