well you have to add the left side which is 2+4=6 and then figure out what would go on the right side by subtracting like 6-1=5 and that is how i figured it out! so then when you add the two sides you should come out with the same amount on both sides,like; 4+2=6 and 1+5=6 and they would balance right !

As 4+2=6 in the left side,we have to equal the weights to 6 on the right side also to balance.There is already 1 inthe right side so,we have to add 5 to that 1.

because if ther is 2 and 4 then there has to be a 1 and 5. I took the one from the two and added it to the four.

2+4=1+5 both sides have to be the same. Since there was only 1 on the right side you needed 5 more on the right side to equal the number 6 on the left side.

On the left side there is a 2 and a 4. On the right hand side is only one. 2 + 4 = 6. Therefore you need a 5 to balance it because 5 + 1 = 6.

Solution:
Q1: 5

because 2 and 4 = 6 and then you have to find another number on the othere side to balance the same size on both sides and on the other side it had 1 and I added 5 so that it could become 6 same as the other side.
