How can you carry nine oranges in four bags and have an odd number of oranges in each bag?

This was on the back of a box of matches I bought… unfortunately it says you have to send a stamped addressed envelope to the company to get the answer.  Don’t know why they wouldn’t put it on the web… just because I still use matches sometimes doesn’t mean I’m living in the nineteenth century…

Anyway, I suspect the answer will be something annoying, like you put 3 oranges in three bags and then put all those bags in the other bag.  Or just put all the oranges in one bag and put all the bags inside each other.
