There must be 7 apples in the barrel and 5 apples left with you.

To find:

Number of apples left

Solution:

It is given that there are 12 apples in a barrel. If we take away 5 then how many apples are left.

If we talk about how many apples are left in the barrel, then the same can be derived by subtracting 5 from 12 i.e.

Number of apples left in barrel = 12 – 5 = 7 apples

But if we take the second view that how many apples are left with you, then the answer will be 5 i.e. the number of apples you took away from the barrel
