Create your own Imbalance Problem

Now that you have worked through several examples, you can get started to create your own imbalance problems! Using the shapes of Triangles, Circles and Rectangles, can you create the imbalanced mobile with enough information, so that someone can figure out the relative weights?

If there is a figure that you are proud of, post it here for others to work on!

Is it possible that the mobile cannot hang the way we drew it?
Is it possible that the imbalance problem cannot be solved?
What are some ways we can solve such problems?
Are there any steps that we can take to make creating such problems easier?
How would you create a puzzle like this?
