Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have a bag X of x pieces of fruit and a bag Y of y pieces of fruit and k fruit are found in both bags, then combining the bags and taking away the fruit means that you take all of the fruit from X and put them with all of the fruit from Y. Then you have to take away the k common fruit from each bag. If you take k fruit from two bags, then you have three k. The answer is x+ykk I know. I'm pretty good at math ... and analorgies.
