Um yeah, 5
Sorry got cut off on the last comment.
Five apples and five children. Give each one an apple and give one an apple with the basket.

or put one kid in the basket, with the last apple <!-- s:) --><!-- s:) -->
This was my first thought too. I like this answer.
Much less bloody than chopping up kids and apples.
Um..... make applesauce; that way you get to keep your basket.
No no no... make kid sauce and keep your apples for the cute teacher down the block.

This problem is really simple. Just give the coolest kid and apple and the basket back.

devide four apples into 5 slcies and give each child four slices of apple
of course my answer is not a trick to the question just a logical answer and if the 5th child takes the apple to eat it would no longer be in the basket thus the solution to this really isnt a valid one

4 of them "get an apple" as in picking it up. THe last gets an apple but hasn't picked it up yet. I don't know if im right... -_-SearchMembersCalendarBlogsGallery

it dosen't ask for each kid to get an apple, so just take 4 out, andcut each into 5 pieces giving every kid 4 pieces. GWARSH!

each kid gets 4/5s of an apple

You put one kid IN the basket while he eats his apple. Problem solved. Next?

theres 5 kids and 5 apples but you have to leave an apple in the basket....
one kid already has an apple in their hands wich means the other 4 get an apple out of th ebasket, which leaves one apple left!

How does the fifth kid ever truly receive the apple if it cannot leave the basket. Seems a bit of a tease to me. What you've ended up with are four happy kids with apples and one kid who hates math because he got a basket instead of a delicious apple. What kid wants a basket anyway? I mean honestly??!!??

omg you just put the kid in the basket..not hard at all

Make applesauce with 4 apples , split it among the kids keep one apple in the basket
Posted April 14, 2008
How bout this bit of logic: Give 4 kids an apple and give the last kid the basket with the last apple in it.
Posted April 15, 2008
make apple sauce with four of the apples and leave the fifth one in the basket
Posted April 15, 2008
Give each child an apple.
Cut the apples for each kid to eat in the basket and then keep one apple core in the basket. I don't believe it read that the apple that stays in the basket has to be whole. ^^

I do believe that it said that there was 5 apples. not that there was ONLY 5 apples. and if I'm smart enough to bring apples to kids who love junk and fast food who don't like apples(and if the do, they must be weird) I'm not going to give him my basket, or put him in my basket. So if there were 5 apples and one had to stay in the basket I would just shoot the last kid and keep my apple. Bad luck for him I guess. He can have one of Jesus's apples.

You could always just go and get another apple, i guess...

I haven't read any of the posts or spoilers, but I'm pretty sure you put a kid in the basket. Might not be the intended answer, since it didn't take much thinking (just a little venn diagram in my head), but it satisfies the parameters of the OP: Each kid has an apple, and there is an apple in the basket. With a kid.
yes but would you really put a kid in a basket???

Stick a kid in the basket.
Posted May 6, 2008
haha...that was retarded

Give four kids a apple and then put the fifth kid into the basket then give them the apple, thats the only way the kid can eat the apple and have it stay in the basket, I know the puzzle doesn't say anything about eating, but kids usual eat apples (or throw the red ones at chian link fences). The kid whose apple must stay in the basket will cry if the other kids eat theirs while his must stay in the basket. Most apple picking baskets are big enough for a kid to at least stand in. The next question is once he eats it does he then have to stay in the basket until he poops or is the change the apple goes through in being eaten enough to end the condition that it must stay in the basket.
