Tablet YBC $4652$
$11$ problems in algebra to be solved.
From the text on the tablet, it is apparent that it originally contained a total of $22$ such problems.
- I found a stone, but did not weigh it. After I weighed out six times its weight, added $2$ gin and added one third of one seventh [of this new weight] multiplied by $24$, I weighed it. The result was $1$ ma-na. What was the original weight of the stone?
A weight of $1$ ma-na equals $60$ gin.
