Have the bowl of grapes on the left or the bowl of grapes on the right?

Whichever option you choose, justify your reasoning with mathematics.

** The bowl is NOT included in the selection!!! **

saudyi would rather prefer the 5 grapes because the ones in half make 4 whole grapes.

A math loverOne on the left. This is because the one on the right are 4 whole grapes that have been halved to look like 8, and there are actually more in the left.

A smarter math loverThe bowl on the right because there are 5 whole grapes in it while the left only has 7 half grapes.
