The more you take away from it the larger it gets. What is it?

It's a hole. Let's use the beach for example. You're digging a hole to bury your brother. The more sand you take away from the hole, the bigger the hole gets, eventually making it brother-sized. lol :P

Would that be your little brother or your bid brother i.e a hole or half a hole?

Well one brother of mine is buried, and the grave digger removed earth and left a hole, then put a coffin with my brother in it and added earth to fill it up again.

So how do you take more sand from that hole that has nothing (no sand in it)?

Hear lies

emptiness or space :huh:

okay here is the space/emptiness between the quotes

(i used dashes to 'show' a gap. - take something away from it and make it bigger, just the space/gap/empty part and see if it becomes bigger, (delete some of the space-dashes)

Well I'm pretty sure the poster meant a hole, but I'm gonna go with the dirt around a hole, not the actual hole itself.

It is similar to another riddle I have hear.

"What can you put into a container that will make it lighter"

Answer = holes

I think the answer to this one though is

Space

i think it may be a negative number because the more you take away from it the larger it will get =]

The U.S. economy!

The more money you take away from our nation, the more valuable our USD becomes

And for the negative number people out there.

Tell me, which is bigger...? -50 or -100?

The obvious answer is -50.

BUT.. If you were to say it was the "Absolute value of a negative number" then it's fine.

To take away from something, how is it possible to make it bigger? To take away from a hole, you would need to fill it up.. technically right?
