Mrs. O'Toole is a decidedly saving person. She, her baby and her dog are trying to weigh themselves, all for a penny, which is what a single weight of the scale costs. If you know that it weighs 100 pounds more than the combined weight of the dog and the baby, that the dog weighs 60% less than the baby and seeing what the scale marks,

Can you determine the weight of the small cherub?

Do you know how much exactly one pound is?

Solution

Mrs. O'Toole weighs 135 pounds, the baby 25 pounds and the dog 10 pounds.
