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.
