Three and a half days.

Each chicken takes a day and a half to lay one egg. So in 24 days each chicken can lay 2/3 of 24 = 16 eggs. There are 24 chicken so, in all, 24*16 = 384 eggs can be laid.

2 hens because 1 hen lays 1 egg a day and 2 hens would lay 12 eggs in 6 days

1 day

84 hours

Half of three eggs is 1 1/2 eggs because 1 1/2 + 1 1/2 =3.

33 eggs...(",)

... well that's stupid whos chiken would lay half an egg! i think the answer is 15 One and a half farmers owning one and a half chickens - is the same as one farmer to one chicken. We can forget about farmers and just focus on chickens. One and a half eggs in one and a half days is the same as two eggs in three days. In ten days one chicken lays 10*2/3 = 6 2/3 eggs ten chickens in ten days lay 60 + 6 + 2/3 = 66 2/3 66 2/3 eggs at $1.5 66 2/3 * 3/2 = 99+6 = $105 10 farmers would make $105 in ten 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. 1.5 / 1.5 = 1; 1 / 1.5 = 2/3. Now, multiply by 3 days: 2/3 x 3 = 2 eggs.

This implies a hen and a half would lay 3 eggs in 3 days. Therefore 3 hens would lays 6 eggs in 3 days. So one hen would lay 2 eggs in 3 days. Or one egg every day and a half.

4 days I believe.

About three days.
