Egg Laying


Recommended Posts

If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half, how many hens that are better by half lay a score and a half in a week and a half?


I am an evil girl.


The major part of the problem is translating it into mathematical notation.

Rounding up to the next whole number of hens, yes. Of course, the posing of the problem seems to have no objection to fractions of hens leading a happy, independent existence, so perhaps it should be 20/7, or two and six sevenths of a hen.
