you never said how much the bar weights!!! in math, you usualy give out all the necessary information to solve the problem...

did you even read the answer and check it dina 2002? he said plus the bar, not including the bar.

I guessed 102 because it's the standard bar weight. You really should have included it in the question, because It sounded like a trick question to me until I saw the answer discluded the bar.

Soduk for this! (Kudos opposite.)

The answer might as well be zero plus the weight of the bar and weights.
