How many eggs are in a dozen?
October 13, 2012 9:23PM
A dozen means twelve and so a dozen eggs is twelve eggs.
Usually eggs are sold in cartons and these contain a specific number which will be either a half-dozen (which is six eggs), a dozen (that is, twelve eggs), or the number can be specified, say nine eggs, or maybe even fifteen or eighteen eggs.
If you want a greater quantity of eggs you might buy a tray, which will be thirty eggs.
For some reason, eggs are usually sold in multiples of three.
