Take a look at the requirements for proper apple storage.

The number of apples in each basket descends in the following order: large basket, medium basket, small basket.

large basket > medium basket > small basket.

US Version

If you're having trouble, try moving everything around and see what's possible. If you just move apples back and forth, though, you probably won't get very far.

US Version

Once you realize that you can move the baskets as well as the apples, you're close to solving the puzzle.

Try out a few different arrangements with the baskets.

UK Version

Did you notice that you can move the baskets too?

Once you know that, you're close to the answer.

US Version

The small basket can fit quite easily into the large basket.

Maybe that will help you count the apples in each basket in such a way that solves the problem

UK Version

You can put the small basket inside the large basket. That might enable you to count the apples in each basket in a way that solves the problem.

Correct!

Put two apples each in the large and medium baskets. Then put one apple in the small basket and move it into the large basket. That does it!
