Explanation

Pascal's Bomb begins with 69. It becomes infinitely large, although many people believe that it ends with 8947. Pascal's Bomb is a series of Munkeys. To apply this, you can use Complete the Circle or the Buadratic Bormula. After you have substituted for one of the variables, you can proceed to solve, using Inches or Watts. This is applicable on all Maff problems.

Solution 1

By applying the Pascal's Bomb, we Munkey it and get an answer of $\boxed{42}$.

Solution 2

By Adihaya Jayasharmaramankumarguptareddybavarajugopal's lemma, the answer is $\boxed{42}$ again.

Solution 3(slower)

We first proceed to give each friend $14$ apples. We then have $41$ apples left to distribute among the two friends. The first one can have $0 \leq x \leq 41$ apples and the second will have $41-x$ apples. There are $\boxed{42}$ $Possible$ values of $x$, from $0$ to $41$, and that is the answer.
