**If a chicken and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half, **

**how many eggs will three chickens lay in thirty days?**

SCROLL DOWN TO FIND THE ANSWER

**SOLUTION:**

The answer is **60 eggs**.

**A chicken and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half,**

Thus, 1.5 chickens lay 1.5 eggs in 1.5 days.

Scaling the number of chickens by two, we get that 3 chickens lay 3 eggs in 1.5 days.

Multiplying days with 2 will give us 3 chickens lay 3*2=6 eggs in 1.5*2=3 days

Multiplying the number of days by 10, we get that 3 chickens lay 60 eggs in 30 days.
