John gave half of the apples he had plus one more to Jacob. He gave half of the remaining ones plus one more to James. Now, John was left with just one apple.

Can you find out how many did he have in the beginning?

    10 Apples.

    Out of 10, half (5) plus 1 = 6 was given to Jacob, leaving 4 remaining.
    Out of the 4, half (2) plus 1 = 3 was given to James, leaving just one with John.
