A counting platform scale is designed to accurately count large quantities of identical items by weight. It typically consists of a flat weighing platform and a digital display that shows the weight of the items placed on the platform. To use this scale, the user places a sample of the items to be counted on the platform and weighs them. The scale then divides the total weight by the weight of each individual item to determine the average number of items per unit weight. This information is then used to count larger quantities of the same items by weighing them and dividing the total weight by the average weight per item.
