cinnamon w notes

Moshe (Moses) was commanded to make Shemen HaMishcha (oil of anointing). It required one measure of myrrh (weighing as much as 500 shekel), two measures of cinnamon (each weighing as much as 250 shekel), one measure of fragrant cane (weighing as much as 250 shekel), and one measure of cassia (weighing as much as 500 shekel) [Shemos (Exodus) 30:23-26]. What was the total weight of the spices?

500 +(2 x 250) +250 +500 = 1750 shekel weight.
