Then, the second gave the first and third as many as they each had. Still later, the third gave the first and second as many as they each already had. Each kid now have 24 pencils.

You have three mislabeled jars. one contains Apple jelly beans, another Orange jelly beans, and the third has a mix of both (not necessarily a 50/50 mix, could be a 1/99 mix or a 399/22 mix).

How many jelly beans would you have to pull out, and out of which jars, to find out how to fix the labels on the jars?
