okay? Were all those fractions, fractions of apples coming from the bag of 16 apples? I have to assume they ar fractions of individual apples but I wonder if they're from the bag of 16 still. As far as I can tell, you're merely making a statement due to the lack of a question mark. But if I had to answer based on these numbers pertaining to that bag of apples as if they were the only apples available and there is no back order of apples due to arrive anytime in the future, I would have to say there are 4 apples left in the bag.
