    You have 6 apples, you take 4 and you're left with 4 because you "take away 4"

    I have 2kg of apples which I really need to eat before they go bad actually. I'll eat some tomorrow, not in the mood now.

    But you had the 6 apples in the first place, you've taken 4 away but there's still 2 left, you've separated them but you still have all 6

    I know, but my 'not enough information' was with regards to what happened to the other two apples - were they my own apples in the first place or someone else's?
