You are given 14 balls, one of which is marked as a reference ball. 12 of the other balls are the same weight as the reference ball but the other ball may be slightly heavier, slightly lighter or the same weight as the reference ball. Using a balance scale how can you determine which is the odd ball, if any, with just three weighings?
