You probably have the (3) that you took away. It didn't say, "How many are left?" So I would say that you have 3 apples.

You will have three apples left. 5-2=3

If YOU take 3 apples from the original 5. You will leave two apples behind and You will have 3 apples. The question asks how many do you have, not how many are left behind. Its a trick on words.

Imagine you are subtracting in real life. If you have eight apples, but then you eat three of them, you only have five left. Therefore, 8 - 3 = 5. However, if you have three apples, and take away eight, you have -5 apples. Which is impossible.

Unless you eat it, you have one left.

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.)

You have the three you took, plus any others you had before you took those three. There are two apples left in the basket where there were five only a moment earlier.

Yes, if you had eight apples and you gave someone seven of them you would only have one left. However if you had eight apples and you gave someone three of them you would still have five apples left.
