The תרומה Puzzle

 

Parshas Hashavua תרומה

  PUZZLING, It s not תרומה טמאה

 

There are100 olives in the basket, 60 of the olives are תרומה & also
60% evenly split between the תרומה and the חולין olives are טמא

60 תרומה X 60% טמא equals 36 olives תרומה טמאה
40 חולין    X 60% טמא equals 24 olives חולין טמאה
60 תרומה X 40% טהור equals 24 olives תרומה טהורה
40 חולין   X 40% טהור equals 16  olives חולין טהורה

If one olive was taken from this basket and it's
unknown which one,
1) we must assume because of רוב that it is (תרומה (60% 
2) We must also assume that it is (טמא (60%
3) We must also assume because of רוב that it NOT
תרומה טמאה  -  Only 36 out of the 100 is תרומה טמאה
therefore רוב is not תרומה טמאה

This olive is תרומה and is also טמא yet is not תרומה טמאה
