There would be 14 candles so Peter would be 14 years old.
From the first
scale, a soldier is 2 if a doll is 1.
Then a violin is the sum of a soldier and a

On the third scale, the left side has a value of 5; the
right side has a value of 7.
So, the scale is balanced by putting 1 solider or 2 dolls on the left side.
