Mixed up Apples at the Farm

Someone has mixed up the apples. Read carefully what has happened. Can you find a way to help solve the problem.
• There are 10 baskets containing apples.

• There are various amounts of apples in each basket ranging from 10 to 20.

9 of the baskets contain apples weighing 4 ounces each.

1 of the baskets contains apples weighing 5 ounces each.

• All the apples look the same.

• The equipment you have is a set of scales and an empty basket.

• It is late and the truck is waiting to take the apples to market. You only have time to make one measurement using the scales. 

Take out the basket contains apples weighing 5 ounces each.
