Stayin' Stingy

Level pending

Horace likes to save money whenever he can so when he went swimming with some of his friends, he had a clever idea to use the weighing machine to weigh him and his two friends for only one 10c coin! Once the weighing machine has shown a reading the dial can only go down to a lower weight. So this is what Horace did. He and his two friends sorted themselves out in order of weight (they knew that Horace was the heaviest and that Tim was the lightest), and then followed this plan: Horace and Kate got on the scales. The dial showed 85 kg Tim got on and Kate got off. The dial went down to 75 kg Kate got back on and Horace got off. The dial went down to 60 kg. Find the correct weights of Hungry Horace, Curly Kate and Tiny Tim in order from least to greatest.
