    ok. then try this one. maybe some have solved before.

    u have a balance scale (those type where u put things on either side to balance). 12 coins. 1 coin is either heavier or lighter. you do not know. only 3 weighing on the balance scale, find the odd coin and determine whether it is lighter or heavier than the rest.

    Split the 12 coins into one group of 8, one group of 4.
    Split the Group of 8 into 2 groups of 4, then weigh which is heavier? (1st Weight)

    2 Outcomes:
    Scenerio 1 :
    If the 2 Groups of 4 balance out, that means the isolated Group of 4 that was taken out earlier contain the heavier coin.
    Take that group of 4 and split into 2 Groups of 2, then weigh which is heavier? (2nd Weight)
    Take the Heavier Group of 2 and split into 2 Groups of 1, then weigh which is heavier? (3rd Weight), and you get the answer.

    Scenerio 2 :
    If the 2 Groups of 4 don't balance out, that the Heavier Group of 4 and split into 2 Groups of 2, then weigh which is heavier? (2nd Weight)
    Take the Heavier Group of 2 and split into 2 Groups of 1, then weigh which is heavier? (3rd Weight), and you get the answer.

    solution not correct, where got so easy one...

    the hard part is that the odd coin is either lighter or heavier than the rest. from the 3 weighing, u have to find out whether it is lighter or heavier.
