Joe bought a bag of oranges on Monday, and ate a third of them. On Tuesday he ate half of the remaining oranges. On Wednesday he looked in the bag to find he only had two oranges left. How many oranges were originally in the bag? (Your answer should be a number between 1 and 10, which can be written as a word or a numeral)
If you take away half a dozen apples, and then return 3 of them to the original dozen, how many of the original dozen remain?
