Another chicken/egg riddleWatch
It'll be interesting to see how the results for the vote pan out!
1 chicken takes 2 days to lay an egg hence 1 chicken will lay 3 eggs in 6 days. 3 eggs * 6 chickens = 18
That's how I would do it anyway
I was rattling my mind with this for 10-15mins last night and was wondering which answer most people would get.
Lol you're complicating it. It's simply the fact that if 2 chicken's lay 2 eggs collectively in 2 days, that's 1 each per day. So in 6 days, 6 chickens will lay 6 eggs.
Assuming 1 chicken lays 1 egg every other day 6 chickens would 18 eggs over the course of 6 days. Well that's how I worked it out anyway.
It's mindboggling. I don't think it's possible to get an end answer unless we are given more info...like "1 chicken on average lays an egg every 24hrs" or something..
Clearly the egg came first as there was a mutation that changed a chicken-like organism into laying a chicken egg, and then chickens were born.
Evolution and natural selection guys - come on
2 chickens produced 2 eggs in 2 days
> One chicken takes 2 days to make one egg
> In 6 days a chicken lays 3 eggs
> Six chickens laying 3 eggs in 6 days = 18 total eggs
