Well, I'm not sure if this is a trick question or not, but I'll try to help.

Q: A baker uses 7 dozen eggs per day. How many eggs is this and what is the calculation?

A: Every day, 7 dozen eggs are used. The formula you'll want to use will look like this:

Definitions: d=dozens per day, t=number of days, A=total number of eggs (answer)

Formula: A=12dt

The reason this works is because there are 12 eggs in a dozen. So since we know that the baker uses 7 dozen per day...

Formula (upgraded): A=(12)(7)(t)=84t

Now you just have to figure out how many days you're talking about. For one day, t=1, for 2 days, t=2, etc.

One day -> A=84(1)=84

Two days -> A =84(2)=168

etc...

The reason i said i wasn't sure if it was a trick question is because there is such a thing as a "baker's dozen", which is actually 13 of whatever you're talking about. If this is the case here, just substitute 13 for 12 in the original formula, and you should be fine.

Eggs were 19 cents a dozen in 1947

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.

When you are talking about cooking. For example, 11 eggs plus 2 eggs equals 1 baker's dozen.

At one time when a person went to a bakery shop and ordered a dozen of anything, a baker would include an extra one. That way if the baker miscounted, the person still got their dozen. So if a person ordered a dozen cookies, a person usually got 13 cookies. Sometimes the baker miscounted and gave the person 12. Still this kept the customer from being mad because he only got 11 cookies. He had ordered a dozen and gotten a dozen. So a baker's dozen consists of 13 of an item.
