If you have 5 apples and you take away 3 apples how many do you have?
You would still have 5
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.
You have 3 apples! You have 3 apples!
5 apples because you took the 3 away
2 apples because if WE TAKE 2 apples then WE HAVE 3 apples.
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 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.
I think you have three because there are five apples and YOU take away three. How many do YOU have? 3.
You would have 2 apples 5 - 3 = 2

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.
You would have 2 apples.
You will have the two you took away.
2 apples (you took them, remember?)
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 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 would have two apples because you took two away so that is what is in your hand.
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.

Five, unless it is supposed to be a trick question. You may be saying that I took 2 away from 3 apples, so it might be one.

1 apple. No, 2 apples because you took 2.

if you take two apples from three apples, then you have 2 apples because you asked 'how much do you'. so it means, how many apples do you have in your hands, or how much you've taken. and so, the answer to this is two.
Three apples minus two apples leaves one apple. 3-2=1
If you have a dozen of apples in a basket If you take half of them but put three back in the basket how many do you have left?
A dozen apples is 12 apples. Here is how you solve it. 12-6+3 =6+3 =9 apples. You will get nine apples.
You will have 3 apples, and there will be 2 apples left.
Let say that there are three apples in the set of apples. Each apple is 1/3 of the set. 3/3 or 1 equals the whole set. Two apples represent 2/3 of the set. So that you can express as you want for having those apples. You can say you have 2 apples, or you can say you have 2 apples out of three apples.
