If there are three apples and you take away 2 how many do you have?
Apples you start with:
* 3 apples Apples you take away:
* 2 apples Apples you are left with:
* 3 apples If you have three apples, and if you and only you were to take away only 2 apples, then you would still have all three of the apples because you are the one that is doing the removing. As long as you don't eat, give, or throw them away, you still would be considered to have them since you are the taker.
It's a trick question.
Now if someone else were to take away the two of the apples, then in this case, you would be left with only one apple.
(You is considered to be one specific person.)
You will have three apples.
I think you have three because there are five apples and YOU take away three. How many do YOU have? 3.
2 apples remain.
Then you have two apples. THREE! no, silly, two
you have three
Three! They are the ones that YOU took.
Two because that's how many apples you took. USE YOUR BRAIN!!
You have only two left.
you have two apples
One apple, 3 apples take away 2 apples is one apple
If YOU take 3 apples from the original 5. You will leave two apples behind and You will have 3 apples. The question asks how many do you have, not how many are left behind. Its a trick on words.
Then you have three.
I dont know what your asking but if you have three apples take away two you still have three just two are somewhere else, But if thats not what you looking for WHATS THREE MINUSE TWO?! THATS ONE you have one apple left USE YOUR BRAIN unless you dropped it somewhere xD OR if the apples are not yours there are three apples YOU TAKE away TWO YOU have TWO and the othere dude has… Read More
If 'take away 3' means 'giving away the 3' to another then the answer is two (2) apples. Otherwise, If 'take away 3' means 'keeping the 3' to yourself and sharing the five (5) apples, the answer is three (3) apples. However, if 'take away 3' means 'keeping the 3' to yourself and still have the five (5) apples then the answer is eight (8) apples.
You probably have the (3) that you took away. It didn't say, "How many are left?" So I would say that you have 3 apples.
You have three apples.
5 apples take away 3 apples leaves you with 2 apples 5-3=2 If you have 5 apples and you take away 3, you have 3 apples. Its a play on words.
One... Silly.Type your answer here...
you have 4 apples and you take away three. In other words, you take apples from yourself, which means you now have 3, but you already have one so you actually have 4. The answer is four. I win. Give me money.
2 apples because if WE TAKE 2 apples then WE HAVE 3 apples.
5 apples because you took the 3 away
You have three apples, still. Nice try!
You have 3 apples! You have 3 apples!
If there five apples and I took three then I would have three.
Two. If you meen you take away then One
2 apples left
You have a total of seven apples.
You would have 2 apples 5 - 3 = 2
YOU would have 3 apples. You see, there are 5 apples, but you don't have those apples, if you take 3 away, then you are taking 3 of those apples, which then you have 3 apples, and you leave 2 left over.
If I have five apples, and I take three apples, how many apples do I have?
You would still have 5
You would have 2 apples.
You will have the two you took away.
You have the 4 you took away.
Three apples minus two apples leaves one apple. 3-2=1
It actually depends on how you read the question. The answer could be 2, 3 or 5.
If there are three apples in a tree and you take two, then you have the TWO apples that you took.
2 apples (you took them, remember?)
You would have two apples because you took two away so that is what is in your hand.
One apple remains, but you might be thinking of a similar version of that question: "If you take two apples from three apples, how many apples to do you have?" The answer to that question is two.
two apples Three apples. You take three, the other guy has two.
It depends on the precise wording of the question. If it is "there are 8 apples and YOU take 6 how many do YOU have" then the answer is 6. If it is "there are 8 apples and 6 are taken away how many do you have" then the answer is 2.
Well, if you take the 2 apples and throw them far away, you would have one. If you still kept those 2 after you took them away, it would still be 3. LOL, weird riddles.
You have one apple- the one you took away.
You have the 5, you took away!
It depends what you mean by 'take' * If you take two more you will have five apples * If you take two away you will be left with one apple
Take the number of apples she has (2), and subtract how many apples she gave away (1.) 2 - 1 = 1 So, Kiki would have 2 apples left.
Four , but only if you had none to start with.
You cannot take three apples from two apples. Two apples is less than three. You can only take up to two apples from two apples. There is no such thing as a negative apple.
