\_/ \_/ \_/ \_/
=============
.......( 4A )

On top of a digital weighing scale
are four identical glasses filled
with water , weighs A+A+A+A

\_/ \_/ \_/ \_/
=============
....( 4A + x )

Poison x was mixed with one of them.
No odor,color or volume change.

If the weighing scale is to be used just once.
How can you identify the glass with poison?
(please use spoiler for your solution)


Warning : Do not try this at home!

1/2 chance of not dieing 

if the peson presenting it knows that the safe one is left then pick right theyll say fine  then distract one bye dropping somthing

then swap cuz they say yes you can tell you picked wrong so no matter what swap them while they cant see and then you drink itll still be on the right but the left one is now right and since left was right and you have now picked the correct drink you win so pick the one they want you to swap them while theyre distracted then drink or just dont drink any of them and bring your own drink of non-poison

What? No way. Your method violates the rules. By removing a second glass....If you need to since the first one was not one fourth the total weight showed on the scale, you use the scale a second time. How can you think this is allowed?

Right, OP?

Doesn't make sense to me.

Absolutes lead to misunderstanding

misunderstanding leads to frustration

Frustration leads to anger.

Anger leads to the dark-side.

The dark-side leads to dislikes.
