Weight 3 balls on each side.

If they weight the same, the light one is one of the two left that were not weighed. Then weight those two to find the lighter one.

If one of the sets of 3 is less than the other, weight any two of the three. If they are the same, the one not weighed is the light one, otherwise, the lighter one will show in the weighing.

### 8 marbles are exactly alike except that one is slightly heavier than the others how do you determine the heavier marble in 2 weighings?

Pick 6 marbles. Weigh 3 against 3. If they balance, then weigh the other two against each other to find the heavier one. If they don't balance, look at the three that are heavier. Pick 2 and weigh them against each other. If they balance, then the 3rd marble in that group is the heavier one. If they don't balance, you have the heavier one.
