Getting Fruity With 73 And 2005 (Posted on 2007-08-06) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Harold and Jonah each has some oranges, apples, and pears. Each of them has 73 pieces of fruit. Curiously, if for each of them you sum the squares of the number of oranges, apples, and pears, you get 2005 in both cases.

If Harold has six fewer apples than Jonah, and each man has fewer oranges compared to other fruits, what do they have each?
