If you and your friends have 5 bananas each, and a monkey comes along and takes 3 bananas from each of you, how many bananas will you have left?

### Answer

Well, some might say this is impossible because I have not told you how many of your pals were there eating bananas with you. They are wrong because the question asks how many YOU have. So after the monkey has taken 3 from your 5, you should have 2 bananas left.Hide Answer Show Answer
