If you are saying is a pound, it does not matter what do you have is always going to be the same weight. 1 Pound is = always 1 pound ... period

The answer to this riddle is: they both weigh the same\n

why should this be a logic riddle? its just trolling with way of how substances are measured. pound is defined by kilograms and as that its a unit for a mass of an object, which has nothing to do with a way of measurement. But with pound theres a problem, because there are multiple different definitions, but without being specific you can't use two different with just saying pound. btw metric system ftw

This is ridiculous. Density.\n\nWe would've learned this in school, or at least heard of it by now.

It's about the standards of measurement for each. A pound of gold means something different than a pound of feathers. Nothing to do with density.

both weight equal, b'cz we're taking 1 pound each.
