You've got three boxes with apples. You know that:
1. In box A there are 6 apples less, or double the number of apples, than in box B.
2. in box C there are 5 apples more than in box A, or 5 less apples than in box B.
3. There are at least two boxes with the same number of apples in them.
How many apples are in each box?
(In reply to solution
... except, I guess, if there are zero apples in box A and also in box B, and 5 in box C.
But then do you really have "three boxes with apples"?
