there are three boxes each containing a prime. it is known that the largest of the three is no more than twice the size of the smallest. (so 7, 11, 13 is the smallest possible values for the three boxes.)

you open one box, and must guess whether your number is smaller, larger or in between the other two values.

which should you guess?
