 1. How do you test a keyboard? 2. Given nine items and one of them is heavier than the others, how do you find the heavier one using a scale twice?1 Answer#2. Weigh 3 vs 3. This will allow you to see if one of the two groups of 3 contains the heavier item. If those two weigh the same the heavy item is on the 3rd group you did not weigh. Now you have determined the group of 3 that contains the heaviest item. Use the same process on the remaining 3 items to find which one is the heaviest.

 Basic two bucket / two hourglass to measure a certain amount1 AnswerThis is just testing the mod % (remainder) operations. For example: Given containers which hold 3 units and 5 units, measure 4 units: 1. Fill up 3 and pour all of it into the 5. 2. Fill up 3 again then pour as much possilbe into the 5. 3. Empty the container of 5. 4. Pour all of the contents of 3 into the empty 5. (Now you have 1 unit in the 5 container). 5 Fill up the 3 container and pour into the 5 unit container to get 4 units. Given containers which hold 4 units and 9 units, measure 6 units: 1. Fill up the 9 container, then pour as much possible into the 4 unit container. 2. Dump out the contents of the 4 containers, and fill it up again with what's left in the 9 unit container. 3. Now there is only one unit in the 9 unit container. 4. Empty the 4 unit container and then fill it with the one unit form the 9. 5. Fill up the 9 unit container to the top. Then dump it into the 4 unit container (which currently contains 1 unit) until it is full. 6. There will only be 6 units left in the 9 unit container when the 4 unit container becomes full.
