If there five apples and I took three then I would have three.

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.
