For the second method of adding weights to both sides, we also split up the problem based on the amount of weights that we were allowed to use. When we were only allowed one weight, again we went with the 1lb weight. However, with this method we could eliminate the need for a 2lb and 3 lb weight. To be able to count as many as possible, we decided that having a 1lb weight, a 4lb weight, and a 6 lb weight was enough to get us all of the numbers up to 7, apart from 10 and 11. We chose 4 because it was the next lowest number and we chose 6 because it was 2 away from 4. With this 2lb difference, we could make up for not having a 2lb weight. And if you added the 1lb and the 6lb, that was a 3lb difference from the 4lb weight. With this combination we made up for not having a 2 and 3 lb weight and we were able to get higher numbers.
