A juggler must perform a trick in which he crosses a narrow bridge juggling 3 balls. He weighs 80 kg and each one of the balls weighs 10 kg. However, the bridge can hold only 100 kg before breaking. The lion tamer said that as long as he kept one ball in the air, the bridge won't collapse. Is he correct?
