Apples - Back to the Logic Puzzles
A basket contains 5 apples. Do you know how to divide them to 5 kids so that each one has an apple and one apple stays in the basket?

4 kids get an apple (one apple for each one of them) and the fifth kid gets an apple with the basket still containing the apple

Well the solution posted with the riddle works too - however I was thinking it could be a larger basket and a small kid who can fit in it. 4 get an apple, and the 5th gets one too he just sits in the basket to eat it.

Give each of the 4 persons 3/4 piece of a apple. Thats taking away 1/4 piece of each apple to give to the 5th person 1/4 x 4= 4/4 or 1 whole apple for the 5th person.
