A couple days ago on the server people were askin trick questions. And i just rembered this one right after i got off. Its been buggin me that i didnt rember then, I`m sure you all know how that goes. (Cplmac this is mostly for you, since my last one you decided was a ponder question.)

If you have 9 apples and you take 7 away how many do you have left?

P.S. here was my other one,

If a man with a split personality kills himself, would it be considered murder or suicide?

no,no,no, it all depends on which hand you have the 7 or 2 in. I for instance am left handed, thus I would probably only have 2 left.

If he killed only himself, what about the other personality? Would it be only in his own head that he killed himself, thus in the real world no phisical damage was done, but in his reality he killed himself and only his other personality survives. making the real world physical person take on all the traits of the surviving personality, esentialy "burying" the other personality? Twould be suicide.
On the other hand, if one personality killed the other, under the premis of the above statemant, twould be murder.
I,myself have three personalities, and will do away with one of them and let you know how it turns out. (after all, i have a spare )

All are great answers,

The answer to the first question, cplmac was right. Ill explain why, If YOU have 9 apples, and YOU take 7 away. They go right back to you. I didnt say you got rid of them.

The second question, I dont know the answer to, but i like em`s.

murder or suicide? 


First off one would have to ask what kind of apples are they? If they were road apples, then I would have none, because I would throw them all away.

Second what if the man's personalities split again before he killed himself? Would he be man to the 2nd power or man to the 4th power? Then, he did kill half of his personalities, would he become a mass murderer?

The answers to both are concealed in cheese.

Mmmmmm, the power of cheese....

Hey, wait a minute, you didn't say anything about granny smiths or cheese, that messes with the whole premis of my whole answer, we shall have to remedy that (out comes the vorpal +10 shield gun)

....and then there was apple sauce and cheese cake, and it was good, and all the forum posters ate and were glad, untill the Holy Handgrenade of Antioch was tossed into their midst with a loud "One, two, four....no, three....ahhhhhh" and then there was jello, and the rabbit (wit big teef) was glad , and he ate of the DC jello and rejoiced...

sorry, another moment crept upon me unawares

Well there's a lot of ways we have to look at this..


1) First, how far did you take the apples away, and did you put them back? Essentially since none of the apples have been put into the void, and none of the apples have been destroyed, you still have the same number you started with.

2) Unless you took them far enough away that you would consider that you no longer had "the other set of apples", it would depend upon where you were. Therefore let set a be the number of apples that you have at point a and b be the number of apples you have at point b. you would either have a apples or b apples.

3) Next, and a careful modifier to 1 and 2 is we have to be mindful of whether we're talking about apples in terms of zero based math or one based math, because we may be talking about the total amount of apples +1 if we're in zero based math, since the zero number may actually represent an apple.

4) Another careful modifier to 1, 2, and 3, we have to know what radix the resulting number should be in. For example, if we determine that there will be 9 apples left over in base 10 math, this could be expressed as 13 in base 6 math or 21 in base 4 math.

But just wait till I get going.

5) An additional note to 1, 2, 3, and 4, is we need to know the timeframe under-which this sample is being performed, contrasted with the decay and growth rate of apples. For example, during that time, you may find that the apples decay, and are no longer considered apples, therefore you would experience a net loss of apples where they are no longer considered apples; however, if the timeframe is sufficiently long, you may find that the decayed apples will grow new trees with more apples, and then you may end up with a net gain of apples, potentially larger than the initial set.

6) In addition, we may need to look at the possible investment of apples. It may be that by a temporary investment of apples at a time of great apple value, that you may be able to obtain more apples at a later time when apples are in abundence. This is especially important since the initial question does not suggest what the other set of apples is doing while some of the apples are taken away.
