There are 12 boxes each containing a coin. There are a total of 11 pennies and 1 other coin in the boxes. You have a balance scale for comparing the weight of the boxes in which you can put any number of boxes on each side. You have at most, three weighings. In these three weighings you must find out which of the 12 boxes has the coin that is not a penny.
