# If one and a half farmers have one and a half chickens which lay one and a half eggs in one and a half days and if an egg sells for one and a half dollars then how much can 10 farmers make in 10 days?

# How long would it take a chicken to lay a dozen eggs if a chicken and a half lays an egg and a half every day and a half?

\n.
\n 18 days \nThis is a classic. Although there is literally no such thing as a chicken-and-a-half or an egg-and-a-half, we can still solve the problem. If you determine the rate at which one chicken lays one egg, you can calculate the answer.\n.
\nGiven: 1.5 eggs per 1.5 chickens per 1.5… days.\n.
\nSo, one chicken can lay one egg in 1.5 days. Hence, it will take one chicken 12 times 1.5, or 18, days to lay a dozen eggs. (MORE)

# 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 day. Therefore, he needs 2 chickens. (MORE)

# If a chicken and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half how long does it take one chicken to lay a dozen eggs?

The main trick to this question is the first conversion. It is tempting to say that the first step is 1 chicken lays 1 egg in 1 day. However, this is incorrect. If 1 1/2 chickens lays 1 1/2 eggs in 1 1/2 days, then we can double the chickens (with the same amount of time) to double the eggs. This… means 3 chickens lay 3 eggs in 1 1/2 days. Simply split them into two groups to verify this. the first group of 1 1/2 chickens lays 1 1/2 eggs in the 1 1/2 days and the second also lays 1 1/2 eggs. This totals 3 chickens, 3 eggs, and 1 1/2 days. (Generally, we may only manipulate one pair of terms at a time, never all 3 at once.) Now, we can imagine splitting 1 1/2 days into three different 1/2 day parts. In each of these parts 3 chickens will lay a third of the number of eggs (so 1 egg). Thus: 3 chickens will lay 1 egg in 1/2 of a day. Then it follows that 3 chickens will lay 2 eggs in 1 day. Now, if we allow those 3 chickens three times as long (3 days), they will produce 6 eggs. 3 chickens will lay 6 eggs in 3 days. One chicken will lay 1/3 of that number of eggs (1/3 * 6 = 2 eggs) in 3 days. 1 chicken will lay 2 eggs in 3 days. Now, if we want 1 chicken to lay 12 eggs, it will take 6 of these lengths of time. 6 * 3 = 18 days. 1 chicken will lay 12 eggs in 18 days . (MORE)

# 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.\n.
\nSolution #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 p…roduction: 2 eggs.\n.
\nSolution #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. (MORE)

# If a chicken and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half how many eggs will you have in a week and a half?

Seven as long as two halves equal one hole. If one and a half eggs are layed in a day and a half, the one egg is layed a day..
Ahh, but the person above has failed to account for the extra half a week. It says a week and a half, so that would be 10 and a half eggs, because 7/2 = 3 and a half and 7+…3.5=10.5 eggs (MORE)

# If one and a half chickens lay one and a half eggs in one and a half days How many eggs do 9 chicken lay in 9 days?

re- 9 eggs is wrong, it says how many eggs would 9 chickens lay in 9 days. that is 81. However. this could be a quote from asimov's I,robot (page 179)and the answer in that case would be 54. -re re. The Answer is 54, like it says in Asimov's books (I just read it in his short story book The Compl…ete Robot, page 495). Just think if one chicken laid one and a half eggs in one and a half days the rate would be 1 egg per chicken per day, equaling 81 eggs for 9 chickens in 9 days. However because the question is if one AND A HALF chickens lays one and a half eggs in one and a half days you times 81 by 2/3 giving 54. I could be wrong though. Can anyone add to this? 54 eggs 04/16/10 RE: Asimov's riddle Hi, thanks for starting this thread. I was thinking about this riddle recently and it definitely had me scratching my head for a while. It is as much of a logic puzzle as it is a math puzzle. The way I see it, You need to establish a number ratio to contrast the comparison of 1.5 chickens, eggs and days to the 9 chickens and 9 days (or 1 chicken 1 day) So, lets say for the sake of finding this mysterious ratio, that each chicken is actually not 1 but 1.5 chickens. So there is an extra .5 (or 1/3) in each day. But we dont have just 1 chicken, we have 9. By taking 9 chickens and dividing it by '1.5 chickens ' we are given 6. Which is 2/3's of 9. This is how many eggs are laid each day. Multiply this number by your number of days (9) and you get the number 54. 54 is a confusing answer, but the right answer. Besides, Robots are not allowed to lie to humans. (MORE)

# What is half the half of one and a half?

"half the half" is one quarter. One quarter = 1 / 4 One and a half = 1 1 / 2 = 3 / 2 One quarter of 1 and a half = 1 / 4 x 3 / 2 = 3 / 8 So, half the half of one and a half = three eighths

# If a chicken and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half how many eggs will 7 chickens lay in a week?

A chicken and a half lays an egg and a half --- is the same as one chicken laying one egg. (in a day and a half) Therefore in three days one chicken will lay two eggs. In a week one chicken will lay 2 eggs and 2/3rds of an eggs In three weeks one chicken will lay 8 eggs. In three weeks… 7 chickens will lay 56 eggs. 56/3 In one week 7 chickens will lay 18 eggs and 2/3rds of an egg. But since you can't lay 2/3rds of an egg, they only lay 18 eggs. (MORE)

# If a chicken and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half how many eggs will 6 chickens lay in 7 days?

Take the information given, and use ratios to scale up the number of eggs:.
if E = eggs per 1.5 chickens per 1.5 days.
eggs per 6 chickens per 7 days = E x 6 / 1.5 x 7 / 1.5 .
= 1.5 x 6 / 1.5 x 7 / 1.5 .
= 1.5 x 4 x 7 / 1.5 .
= 1.5 x 4 x 7 / 1.5 .
= 4 x 7.

3 is your numerator and your denominator (2) stays the same. new fract…ion= 3/2. .
next your problem is 3/2 divided by 2/1 (2/1 equals 2) .
you're not going to divide, you're going to multiply. the second fraction (2/1) will need to be flipped. your new problem = 3/2 x 1/2 .

# How much is one and a half times one and a half?

Since halves times halves equal quarters, the answer of a number times itself plus a half will always end in a quarter as in: .25 or Â¼. And to get an answer to any number plus one half times itself, add ONE to the whole number, times the original whole number times that number and add the quar…ter. Examples: 1Â½ Ã 1Â½ = 2Â¼ since 1+1=2, it would be 1Ã2+Â¼. 2Â½ Ã 2Â½ = 6Â¼ since 2+1=3, it would be 2Ã3+Â¼. 3Â½ Ã 4Â½ = 12Â¼ since 3+1=4, it would be 3Ã4+Â¼. 4Â½ Ã 5Â½ = 20Â¼ since 4+1=5, it would be 4Ã5+Â¼. 5Â½ Ã 6Â½ = 30Â¼ since 5+1=6, it would be 5Ã6+Â¼. 6Â½ Ã 7Â½ = 42Â¼ since 6+1=7, it would be 6Ã7+Â¼. 37Â½Ã37Â½=1,406Â¼ since 37+1=38, it would be 37Ã38+Â¼. You can do the first several in your head with no pencil or paper. If someone asks you what 6Â½ times 6Â½ is, just multiply 6Ã7 in your head, which equals 42 and add Â¼ to it. The answer is: 42Â¼ or 42.25. It is always fun to learn little math tricks like that. (MORE)
