Does muscle weight more than fat? well technically no…. muscle is more dense than fat. Take this picture into consideration.
While 5 pounds of fat is more obvious on a body because it takes up more space, to even it up picture the amount of space 15 pounds of muscle might take up vs the same mass as 5 pounds of fat.(they should be around the same) so when comparing mass over weight… Its safe to say 15 pounds of muscle and 5 pounds of fat take up the same space. Thats why as you get smaller and more fit. The scale might not move as much, but your still losing those inches.
