To make your point clear Jay let’s go to the extreme ends. It’s a 2 ball spot-that’s the assumption I’ll use for this most fascinating mathematical model.

9-7 & 8-6 is your example and all I’m going to do is make it clear for everyone by using extremes with the same 2 ball spot:

2-0 or 100-98 or 3-1 or 101-99

Are all the same spot, yet are all huge differences in weight. As we approach zero the amount weight increases without the absolute number of balls changing.

This is just a clarification post with big words.
