I have 10 red socks and 10 blue socks in a drawer. The room is dark and I cannot see into the drawer.

How many socks must I take out to ensure that I have at least one matching pair?

    3 socks to ensure one matching pair and 12 socks to ensure one pair of each color.

    Only three would be needed to ensure a single pair of the same color, but you would need to take out twelve socks to guarantee a pair of each color.
    You’re today’s winner!
