A group of tourist visited a tribal village.
A yearly tax collection was been performed in the village in a very unique fashion.
The taxes were to be paid in the form of grains.
Every male must pay pounds of grain equaling his respective age.
For example 15 year old will have to pay 15 pounds of grains and a 50 years old will pay 50 pounds of grain.
The chief who collects the tax has 7 weights and a large 2 pan scale to weigh.
But there is another rule that the chief can weigh only with three of the seven weights.
Can you find out the weights of the seven weights?
Also what is the maximum age of the man that can be weighed for the payment of taxes?
