11 apples

You would choose to draw from the box labeled "Apples and Oranges"...Whatever fruit you draw is the fruit from that box. (you know this is the case because the boxes are mislabeled) You then proceed to relabel the box with "Apples" if that is what you drew. Then you relabel the original "Apples" box to "Oranges" and the original "Oranges" box to "Apples and Oranges".

Answer is 25 did it in 1 sec don't bet ur life on it

Treat it as a simultaneous equation and it works out as: Oranges = 0.10 each Apples = 0.20 each

I believe this question should also stipulate that the boxes are incorrectly labelled, then my solution works (I think)! It's easier if you number the boxes:- The box labelled the oranges is box no.1 " " " " apples " " " 2 " " " " apples & oranges is box no. 3 Now remembering that box no.1 is incorrectly labelled "oranges" Box no.2 is incorrectly labelled "apples" and Box no.3 is incorrectly labelled "apples & oranges". Take a sample from box no.3....if it is an apple, then box no.3 holds apples. Box no.2 labelled "apples" is wrong so this box must contain oranges and this leaves box no1 which must hold apples& oranges. This works in reverse (if you pick an orange from box no.3), so you always start with box no.3

Mathematically, you would have 1. 4 - 3 = 1 On the other hand, depending on how you think. If you take 3 from 4, then you would have 3 apples.

Is this like comparing apples to oranges? I'd say like 6 apples.

Comparing apples and oranges is a phrase meaning that two things can not be compared.However they really could. They are both fruit and sweet. They both grow on trees. They are both edible. They both can be peeled.They are different in many ways. Apples have smooth skin. Some people eat apple skins but other than in flavorings, people don't eat orange peels. Oranges have citric acid. Oranges grow in subtropical climates and apples grow in temperate climates.http://www.improbable.com/airchives/paperair/volume1/v1i3/air-1-3-apples.html
