... 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.
