What is the mass of the basketball?
00:00:06.399 --> 00:00:09.629
In this question, we have to find the mass of the ball.
00:00:10.999 --> 00:00:12.079
But there’s a problem.
00:00:12.609 --> 00:00:17.099
There’s a ball and a cube or a box on the measuring scale.
00:00:18.309 --> 00:00:22.879
This scale tells us the mass of the box and the ball together.
00:00:24.069 --> 00:00:28.249
The dial on the scale is pointing to the number 600.
00:00:29.279 --> 00:00:34.149
So we know the mass of the box and the ball is 600 grams.
00:00:35.359 --> 00:00:38.699
On the second set of scales, there’s just the cube.
00:00:39.999 --> 00:00:47.859
The dial on the scale is pointing to the number 400, which means the mass of the cube is 400 grams.
00:00:49.439 --> 00:00:55.669
So we have to find the difference between 600 grams and 400 grams.
00:00:56.989 --> 00:01:00.919
What is 600 take away 400?
00:01:01.869 --> 00:01:03.249
It’s 200.
00:01:04.569 --> 00:01:19.839
If the mass of the cube and the ball together is 600 grams and the mass of the cube on its own is 400 grams, then the mass of the ball on its own is 200 grams.
00:01:21.049 --> 00:01:26.709
To find the mass of the ball, we subtracted 400 from 600.
00:01:28.409 --> 00:01:31.669
The mass of the ball is 200 grams.
