1. ## Worth the Weight

You are shown a pile of dimes all of which have one of two distinct weights differing by a small amount not detectable by feel. Forty eight dimes are separated from this pile and you are told of these forty eight, light ones are a dime a dozen (literally - i.e. 44 heavy dimes and 4 light dimes). Using a balance scale twice, find seven heavy dimes. EDIT: for clarification

I thought it fit most all the clues but couldn't quite reconcile the "costing us green" bit. Perhaps peas vs worms? or maybe just it's more common idiomatic meaning? Anyway, most enjoyable as always my friend.
