27. suppose you pick 12 apples, then 12 oranges, and the only thing left would be grapefruits, leaving you to pick 3 of them, and you now have at least 3 of the same of each kind of fruit. 7 if you only need 3 of any fruit.

You have 3 apples...

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

3/4 + 1/2 = 5/4 or a bucket and a quarter.
