ANSWER BELOW

The goal is to find the value of 1 square. There are 3 squares on one side, and the number 270 on the other side of the scale. The scale is equal, as well as the value of each square. So to find the value of just one square, you would have to divide 270 by 3. As a result, your answer would be 90.
