Ts’ao Ch’ong suddenly thought of an idea. “Put the elephant in a boat,” he said. “Draw a line on the side of the boat level with the water. Take the elephant out. Then load the boat with stones until the water comes up to the line. You can then weigh the stones to find out the weight of the elephant.”
