One of the following 12 tiles is different in weight than the rest. You do not know whether it is lighter or heavier and cannot discern the difference in weight by merely looking or weighing the tiles in your hand. Instead you are given access to a balance scale and are allowed to use it 3 times to discover which of the twelve tiles is different and whether it is lighter or heavier than the rest.
