For the fulcrum to balance, the product of weight and distance on both sides of the fulcrum must be the same. Let d1= x. since total distance is 12, we can write d2 = 12 - x for the fulcrum to balance: 60x = 50(12 - x) 60x = 600 - 50x 110x = 600 x = 5.45 Thus, d1= 5.45 and d2= 12 - d1 = 12 - 5.45 = 6.55 d1 = 5.45 d2 = 6.55
