yes,
you take out one basket ball from the 3rd box.

- ineedhelp10

okay and then

- hartnn

if you find that its a outdoor basketball,
then label the 2nd box as 2 indoor baskeballs,
label the 3rd box as 2 outdoor basketballs,
and label the 1st box as 1 indoor and one outdoor basketballs.

- hartnn

if you find that its a indoor basketball,
then label the 2nd box as 1 indoor and 1 outdoor baskeball,
label the 3rd box as 2 indoor basketballs,
and label the 1st box as 2 outdoor basketballs.

- ineedhelp10

wait so im more confused now, so is it a indoor basketball or a outdoor ?

- hartnn

" it a indoor basketball or a outdoor"
what is?
you are not asked which basket ball you chose ...
you are asked which box would you see to choose a basketball.
and its the 3rd box.

- ineedhelp10

okay but then the correct labels for the boxes has me confused

- hartnn

when you chose to see one basketball from 3rd box.
it could be indoor or outdoor
and depending on that you will change the labels :)

- ineedhelp10

so i can choose whether i want the basket from the third box to be indoor or outdoor

- hartnn

"all of the labels are on the wrong box"
is a very important information!
no, you can't choose....thats why it depends on what you get from the 3rd box

- ineedhelp10

so how can i figure out what i get from the third box?

- hartnn

again, its not asked what will you get from the 3rd box.
depending on what you get (which is not in your control), you will label the boxes as i explained in the previous comments.

- hartnn

let me elaborate my thought process,
we know all boxes have wrong labels,
so box 3 definitely has either both indoor or both outdoor basketballs.
seeing box 3, we will confirm whether it has 2 indoor or 2 outdoor basketballs.
case 1: we see indoor basketball,
so correct label for box 3 is "2 indoor basketballs"
....to be continued

- ineedhelp10

but it says that box 3 is labeled as one indoor basketball and one outdoor basketball..

- ineedhelp10

can you continue your thought process please

- hartnn

"but it says that box 3 is labeled as one indoor basketball and one outdoor basketball"
thats why we can say that box 3 definitely has either both indoor or both outdoor basketballs
...continued
now box1 is also incorrectly labelled,
if I label box1 as "1 indoor and 1 outdoor basketball"
then box2 will remain as "2 outdoor basketball"
which is incorrect, given "all boxes have wrong labels"
hence I MUST label box1 as "2 outdoor basketballs"
and what remains is box2 with label "1 indoor and 1 outdoor basketball"
this is the most important part, try to understand it

- ineedhelp10

so then that means that the correct label for the third box is 2 indoor basketballs?

- hartnn

if we see an indoor basketball from the 3rd box, then yes

- ineedhelp10

okay so then i get it now

- ineedhelp10

so then the first box is 2 outdoor, the second is 1 outdoor/i indoor, and the third box is 2 indoor?

- hartnn

thats right, if we see an indoor ball in 3rd box.

- ineedhelp10

so is that the answer i can submit in or

- hartnn

you do realize thats half the answer right?
because we could see an outdoor basketball from the 3rd box!

- ineedhelp10

so how would we know if the third box is indoor or outdoor

- hartnn

lol same question again!
we would know what the correct label for the 3rd box is, only after we see one basketball from that box.
if its a indoor basketball,
the correct label for 3rd box is "2 indoor basketballs"
if its a outdoor basketball,
the correct label for 3rd box is "2 outdoor basketballs"

- ineedhelp10

so then which one is it?! im sorry can you just tell me please im frustrated over here

- hartnn

A. From which box would you choose to see a basketball in order to be able to label all the boxes correctly?
Answer : From box 3.
--------------------------
B. What is the correct label for the first, second, and third box?
Answer:
If we saw an indoor basketball from box 3,
then
Label for box 1 : 2 Outdoor basketball
Label for box 2: 1 Indoor and one Outdoor basketball
Label for box 3: 2 Indoor basketball
But if we saw an outdoor basketball from box 3,
then
Label for box 1 : 1 Indoor and one Outdoor basketball
Label for box 2: 2 Indoor basketball
Label for box 3: 2 Outdoor basketball
----------------
^^ that should be your answer

- ineedhelp10

so there's technically two answers right?

- hartnn

yes, as i said, depending on what ball you see :)
