A woman was being robbed and she could only run away with two of her golden balls they each were 10 pounds an she was 100 pounds in order to get away she had to cross a bridge and the bridge had a completely accurate sighn that said ony 110 pounds was aloud to cross. if all together they were 120 pounds how did she get across?

answer:she jugled them across[/b][/i]

The act of throwing a 10 pound ball upwards generates greater than 10 pounds of force downwards. So the act of throwing one ball up in the air would cause the bridge to collapse. Juggling is not the answer.

A possible answer would be to roll or throw the ball across the bridge. But of course that means this is a lateral thinking puzzle.

It mentions nothing about her being chased by the robber. She can set one down, go across, set down the other, go back, and bring the first one she set down back across.

its says that 120 pounds weight is allowed to cross the road. its not mentioned that the golden balls weigh 10pounds or they cost 10pounds.If we choose 10 pounds(money) then she will be able to cross the bridge.
