Write equations. Figure out the weights of the blocks. Same blocks weigh the same.

1.

w = ? \ pounds, x = \underline{?} \ pounds, y = \underline{?} \ pounds, z = \underline{?} \ pounds

2.

w = ? \ pounds, x = \underline{?} \ pounds, y = \underline{?} \ pounds, z = \underline{?} \ pounds

3.

w = ? \ pounds, x = \underline{?} \ pounds, y = \underline{?} \ pounds, z = \underline{?} \ pounds
