    If one and a half hens lay one and a half eggs in one and a half days, how many eggs does one hen lay in one day?



    Solution
    Find the daily rate per hen:

    Hens * Days * (Daily Rate) = Eggs

    1 ½ * 1½ * (Daily Rate) = 1 ½

    (Daily Rate) = 1 ½ / (1 ½ * 1 ½)

    Daily Rate = 1/(1 ½) = 2/3

    So 1 hen in 1 day will lay two-thirds of an egg
