In an attempt to attract customers of all types this woman sells two classes of plum tomatoes. In the rear is a case full of fully ripe undamaged fruit at a higher price. The case in front contains tomatoes, that for obvious reasons, are significantly cheaper. She weighs customers purchases in a simple balance scale made from two metal bowls, string and a piece of wood.
