Gold Nuggets Quiz Puzzle Answer

Last week's Puzzle proved popular, so here is a similar puzzle, but with a twist.

Three gold prospectors Adam, Bob and Carl have found nine gold nuggets, in fact they each found three gold nuggets - how fair was that? Well, not quite so fair, as the weight of Adam's three nuggets was exactly twice the weight of Bob's three nuggets.

The weights in ounces of the nine nuggets were 10, 13, 16, 17, 19, 22, 46, 101 and 154.

Which three nuggets did Carl find?

Carl's three nuggets weighed 17, 101 and 154 ounces.

Adam must have found the nuggets weighing 16, 22 and 46 ounces, totalling 84 ounces. Bob's nuggets weighed 10, 13 and 19 ounces, totalling 42 ounces.
