Apples (Posted on 2007-03-15) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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?

... 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"?
