1. ## Challenge #8

Ceylon
20.00 (Location time)
EST 10.30am, PST 7.30am

We will see how we can weigh in on this one!

2. Eastern Treasure
Balance and Measure
From Large to Small
From Light to Dark

3. This is the first time I can actually sit and do this at one sitting.

lg to small

light to dark

since the bay of bengal is the next destination I believe the first coord will be 1805.

working of first four coord large to small
second four light to dark

just talking it out here for anyone else that it may inspire

4. Don't know if it helps, but

1 large white
= 2 tan
= 3 red
= 4 yellow
= 5 orange
= 6 black
= 8 small white
= 8 green (either)

5. So large to small is
White - Tan - Red - Yellow - Orange - Black - White - Green

Light to Dark is
White - White - Tan - Yellow - Green - Orange - Red - Black

not on color hues

6. aha - size matters!!!

7. Your help was invaluable Molnar!

Thanks

8. In my half-sleep state, I noticed that while you could only put 8 different items on the scale, you could put 16 of the same item on the scale. That led me to assume some kind of relative weighing was involved.

9. hehe!

You are so much better at this stuff half asleep than I can be fully awake and shooting on all cylinders in my noggin!

10. This is trial and error - my connection keeps getting interrupted. Will try to post the solve - prob in pieces parts. Thanks for the patience.
