NARRATOR: He stacked one small cube, the big cube, and the large rectangular block all on one side. The other side held only one of the small cubes. Archimedes guessed that the heavy side weighed five times that of the one small cube. Now he tried to balance the board again. ARCHIMEDES: Ha! It balances! NARRATOR: The stacked heavy side was almost on top of Archimedes' balance point.
