Question description

Today in Chem we tried figuring out the mass of one large paperclip by measuring several at once. We put random amounts of paper clips on a scale then took a handful out writing down the weight anytime anything was added or taken out. We finished with 30 random masses ranging from 51.08g to 190.87g. We placed the different masses in order from least to greatest and then found the difference between each set of two numbers next to each other. Differences range from 18.26g down to .87g. Would the weight of a paper clip be lowest number assuming those two measurements only had one paperclip difference?
