Three locks

Three locks

I have a theory that says all bikes weigh 40 pounds. The lighter the bike, the heavier the locks.


Sounds like the beginnings of an exam question

Susan has a bike, she has 2 locks, with the two locks her bike weighs 40 pounds.

Peter has a bike, he has 3 locks, one of which is the same as Susan's. Peters bike with the locks weighs the same as Susan's bije with the locks. How much does Peters bike weigh?

Carl, dude, it weights 40 pounds. Read the blog post man!

"pounds"? And which pounds may that be?

Vowe, why not stick to kilograms?

Maybe because 40 kilograms would be quite heavy? ;)
