Number of Apples in a Basket


What was the game? 

There are 2 guesses which were off by 8. That means exact number must be guess (1) + 8 & guess (2) - 8. So those 2 guess must differ by 16 from each other. And there are 2 guesses in given list differing by 16 & those are 22 & 38. Hence the exact number of apples in a covered basket is 30. Let's verify with all guess & errors.

22 + 8 = 30

24 + 6 = 30

29 + 1 = 30

33 - 3 = 30

38 - 8 = 30


The number of apples in a basket is 30
