Give and Take

A boy and a girl each have a bag of containing the same number of jelly beans. How many jelly beans must the boy give the girl so that the girl will have ten more jelly beans than the boy?

Answer

The boy must give the girl five jelly beans, not ten.

He would then have five less, and she would have five more, and the difference between them would be ten.
