Yes, manxman - the 4 has been removed from the sequence ("out four") smile

Great solve, Denis - as you spotted, the crux is picking that initial weighing - 2 of one colour, one each of the others. bravo

I'm thinking it's about 9.5 feet, or the circumference of the roller. think

Yes, manxman! wave

Goes contrary to what you think is the obvious (9.2), but if you imagine the centre of the rollers being stationary, then the slab goes 9.4 one way, and the ground goes 9.4 the other way. So the plank moves approx 18.4 in relation to the ground.
