Amerchant had a 40 kg measuring weight that broke into four pieces as the result of a fall. when the pieces were subsequently weighed, it was found that the weight of each piece was a whole number of kilograms and that the four pieces could be used to weigh every integral weight between 1 and 40 kg. what were the weight of the pieces.


Dear student,

Please find below the solution to the asked query:

We have to find weights of the 4 different pieces that can eb broken from a total wieght of 40 kg so that we can measure weight between 1 to 40.These four weights can be 1, 3, 9 and 27 kg.Then the weights from 1 to 40 can be measured as follows:   1 (given)   2=3−1   3 (given)   4=3+1   5=9−3−1   6=9−3   7=9−3−1   8=9−1   9  (given)  10=9+1  11=9+3−1  12=9+3  13=9+3+1    ⋮    ⋮    ⋮  38=27+9+3−1  39=27+9+3  40=27+9+3+1Thus the required weights are,  1, 3, 9 and 27 kg

Let us first analyze the life cycle of mosquitoes.  

The mosquito goes through four stages of its life: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Eggs are laid on water and hatch to become larvae. These larvae live and grow in the water and in their pupal stage undergo metamorphosis to become adults.  

With the increase in rainfall and the dependence of mosquitoes on water, the most logical answer is that the climate change will bring about the a positive effect because it makes the ecosystem more conducive for reproduction of mosquitoes and that there is a likelier chance of survival among mosquitoes due to the good climate. Populations will thrive in this climate which is beneficial for the mosquitoes.
