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.

5 apples take away 3 apples leaves you with 2 apples. 5 - 3 = 2

Three! They are the ones that YOU took.

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 youand 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.)
