I have 14 apples with me – of which 27th of them were spoilt. After selling off some of them, I was left with 15th of the fresh apples. Half of the remaining apples were eaten up by my wife. Enter the total number of apples which are left with me. ___
Let us start with 14 apples of which 14×27=4 4 apples were spoilt. So, I am left with 10 apples. After selling them in the market 10×15=2 2 apples were left. Half of two apples would be 2×12=1 1 apple, which was eaten up by my wife. So, I am left with 1 apple.
