### If two hens lay two eggs in two days how many eggs will ten hens lay in ten days?

the answer is 50 eggs. if 2 hens lay 2 eggs in 2 days, that
means that 1 hen, lays half an egg (0,5) in 1 day (a common mistake
is saying that 1 hen lays 1 egg in one day but then each hen would
lay 2 eggs in 2 days, meaning there will be 4 eggs layed). if each
hen lays half an egg (0,5) in one day, in 10 days each hen will lay
5 eggs. So,...

### If a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half how many hens to lay six eggs in six days?

Since the number of chickens and eggs are the same, you can
simplify both to one. Therefore, a chicken can lay an egg every day
and a half. 6/1.5=4, therefore it would take four hens.

###### Asked in Numbers

### A chicken farmer has figured out that a hen and a half can lay a egg and a half in a day and a half How many hens does the farmer need to produce one dozen eggs in six days?

Answer
Three hens will lay 4 eggs each.
Here'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. Answer
Take away the halves. 1 hen will lay one egg each...

### If a hen and a half laid and egg and a half in aday in a half how many would 6 hens lay in 7 days?

28 eggs.
1.5 eggs per 1.5 hens. Same as 1 egg per 1 hen.
So, 1 egg per hen, in 1.5 days. That's 2/3 egg per day, per
hen.
So, 2/3 egg/day per hen * 6 hens = 4 egg/day for 6 hens.
4 egg/day * 7 days = 28 eggs total.

Hmm... tough to crack, so to speak. Will I end up with
egg-on-face? It would not be the first time. I think we could break
it out this way: If in a given length of time [any length of time--
1.5 days in this case] 1.5 hens can lay 1.5 eggs, it stands to
reason that 3 hens will lay 3 eggs in the same length of time,

If a hen lays 4 eggs in 5 days, at that same rate, she'd take 15
days to lay a dozen eggs. Same answer for 8 hens: 15 days. Note
that the trick here is that the number of hens is irrelevent;

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### If a hen and a half lay an egg and a half in a day and a half how many eggs can one hen lay in three days?

The answer is 2 eggs. Solution #1: Let's get some whole numbers.
If we double the number of chickens, we get twice the production.
So, 3 hens lay 3 eggs in 1.5 days. If we double the days, we double
the production again. So, 3 hens lay 6 eggs in 3 days. Now, divide
by 3 to get one hen's production: 2 eggs. Solution #2: To get eggs
per hen per day: 1.5 eggs / 1.5 hens / 1.5 days....

### If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half how many eggs would seven hens lay in six days?

(a product) 1.5E/1.5H*1.5D = 1/1.5 E/HD
(1/1.5 E/HD)(7 H*6 D) = 42/1.5 E = 28 E
The common denominator is 1.5 so divide all by 1.5. so, you end
up with one chicken lays one egg in one day 7x6=42. Perhaps it is
coincidence but in the "real world" a chicken lays one egg per day.
Answer 42!!!

### If a hen and a half lay an egg and a half in an hour and a half how many eggs will 10 hens lay in ten days?

3hens must lay 3eggs in 1.5 days
because doubling the hens must double the eggs in the same
time
so by the same logic
1hen must lay 1egg in 1.5 days
so
10hens must lay 10eggs in 1.5 days
but if you double the time with the same number of hens then you
double the eggs
so
10hens must lay 20eggs in 3 days
and
10hens must lay 40eggs in 6 days
and

### If it takes 21 days for 21 chickens to lay 21 eggs how many days will it take 14 chickens to lay 14 eggs?

Actually it takes 21 days. Each chicken takes 21 days to lay an
egg, so it takes 21 chickens to get 21 eggs. It also takes 14
chickens to lay 14 eggs in 21 days.
Reasoning (mistakenly) that if it takes 21 hens 21 days to lay
21 eggs then it must take 14 hens 14 days to lay 14 eggs,
eventually leads to 1 hen laying 1 egg in 1 day. If that were the
case, then it would only...
