Ganz gut. Tres bien. My son just gave me this one the other day. Got it out of Country Magazine. It was a great logic and algebra lesson. He’s still thinking through what happens if you take a hen and a half’s production for three days (two times a day and a half) and get 3 eggs. He ain’t had algebra yet. Thanks for printing the solution in the form of an algebra problem. It will hopefully help him to see the value of higher education.
