Objective: If a hen and a half lay an egg and a half in a day and a half then how many hens will it take to lay six eggs in six days?

Short Answer: 1.5 hens.

Full Solution

According to the data we have: 1.5 eggs in 1.5 days require 1.5 hens

1 egg in 1.5 days will require:
1.5 eggs/1.5 hens = 1 hen

1 egg in 1 day will require:
1 * 1.5 days = 1.5 hens

6 eggs in 1 day will require:
1.5 * 6 hens

6 eggs in 6 days will require:
1.5 * 6 / 6 = 1.5 hens
