Thanks to Hugh for actually weighing the bananas.

The puzzle is a creation of Rob Eastaway.

Support me on Patreon and I swear I’ll not waste the money on a banana costume. I’ll totally use the money to make more, serious maths videos.

You also get to watch me eat a banana. While dressed as a banana.

– None yet. Let me know if you spot any mistakes.

As always: thanks to Jane Street who support my channel. They’re amazing.
