Here is a new logic puzzle for you all to try. You have three boxes. One is labeled "Apples", one is labeled "Oranges" and one is labeled "Apples and Oranges". All three are labeled incorrectly. You can pick one fruit from one box. How will you relabel the boxes correctly? For more math puzzles visit http://www.onlinemathlearning.com/

You pick one fruit from box labeled apples and oranges, call it box one - if it is an orange - remove the lable from box labeled oranges (call it box two)and attach it to this box, attach the apples and oranges label to box three and the label from box three on box two.

simple... pick up a fruit from box labelled 'apples and oranges'. off course it will contain only one of the fruits let's you picked an an apple from the 'apple and orange box'. u take off the lable of the 'apple' box and put it on the box from which u just picked. since all the labels are wrong, the remaining box i.e. the one from which u havent picked or removed the label from (box labelled 'oranges' in this case), will also have a wrong label thus the label of 'apples and oranges' goes onto that box and the label of 'oranges' goes onto the box which was labelled 'apples'.
