not much to understand there... It's a shortcut :) when you're given coins or marbles and they tell you like there are x marbles/coins and how many minimum tries will it take to get y outcome which could be find the bad coing/heavy marble etc.... The general formula to solve this is N number of marbles ; the number of weighings is (log N /log 3)* ,where x* is the value of x rounded up to the nearest ones. To explain, assume there are 10 marbles and one of them is heavier. find which one in the minimum amount of tries. Divide the marbles into 3 groups with 3 marbles each.
Step 1.1: Start weighing with 3 marbles on each side.
Scenario 1.1: The balance shows a heavier side. Go to step 1.2 with these 3 'heavy' marbles.
Step 1.2 - Weigh any 2 marbles of the marbles.
Scenario 1.2.1 - One of them will be greater.
Sceario 1.2.2 - If they are equal, the third unused marble is the heavier.
Scenario - 2.1 - The balance shows equally weighed marbles.
Step 2.1 - Pick the unused set. Go to step 1.2
In any case, you dont need more than 2 operations to determine the heavier marble.
For any given N, solve for x in 3^x=N' where N' is the next higher power of 3 greater than N. N'=N if N is a power of 3. .... if you try to do the explanation method with the bigger numbers, it takes a while :)
