Jon's MENSA Question of the Day

--posted by JRJ on 5/08/2006

You have one of those fancy double boilers whose lid fits either pot. They aren't very heavy pots, either. The bigger pot weighs 12 ounces by itself; with the lid on, it weighs twice as much as the little pot without the cover. The little pot, with the lid on, weighs one-third more than the big pot all by itself. What does the pot lid weigh by itself?
