# Bananas are for Eating

Trick
Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.Trick

If you and your friends have 5 bananas each, and a monkey comes along and takes 3 bananas from each of you, how many bananas will you have left?

### Answer

Well, some might say this is impossible because I have not told you how many of your pals were there eating bananas with you. They are wrong because the question asks how many YOU have. So after the monkey has taken 3 from your 5, you should have 2 bananas left.Hide Answer Show Answer

So I guess th trick is that there isn't a trick. Nice.

Huh?

Good trick, it almost fooled me!

since i thought that there were 5 friends with one banana each, i thought that the answer was one

More of a Treat than a Trick

Hmm.....pretty good and Yes I thought the "trick" was that it was impossible. But you know, when you said "You" it could have meant You PLuRaL......Anywayz..........

Easy but cute. I picked up on your wording right away.

i have 5 bananas. i took them back from the monkey

I agree with deep. I had a little trouble chasing the monkey, because it turns out that i was the monkey, and I took the bananas and ate them...

You can also mean you as a group =P

Nice teaser
