Three hens will lay 4 eggs each.

ReplyDeleteHere's the logic:

Hmm, 1.5 hens lay 1.5 eggs in 1.5 days

doubled (to form usable whole numbers) is 3 hens laying 3 eggs, in the same 1.5 days.

4 times the number of days (6) gives 4 X the number of eggs (3 eggs X 4 = 12 eggs)

So, 3 hens taking 4 times as long (6 days) lay 12 eggs.

Three hens.
