Phyllis is on an archeological expedition. Finally, she discovers what she has been questing for, the Coins of the Eight Crowns! The problem is, there are nine of them. One of them is fake and it’s cursed! All the coins are identical. The only way to tell the fake one, is that it is very slightly heavier than the others. Snakes and spiders are closing in on her and she only has three minutes before she is surrounded and doomed. With her handy dandy balance scale, she only has time to do two weighings. How can she separate the fake coin, leaving the curse behind, and escape with only two weighings?
