Post subject: Basket of eggs riddle  PostPosted: Oct 27, 2005 - 10:48 AM





General
Basket of eggs

A man is walking down a road with a basket of eggs. As he is walking he meets someone who buys one-half of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. He walks a little further and meets another person who buys one-half of his eggs plus one-half of an egg. After proceeding further he meets another person who buys one-half of his eggs plus one half an egg. At this
point he has sold all of his eggs, and he never broke an egg. How many eggs did the man have to start with?


                    
Courage is not the lack of fear but the ability to face it.

ok... The man had seven eggs at the beginning of his journey

Someone bought half his eggs (3 1/2) plus a half, to total four, leaving him three eggs.

The next person bought half his eggs (1 1/2) plus a half, to total two, leaving him one egg.

The last buyer bought half his eggs (1/2) plus a half egg, to total one egg, leaving him free of his egg burden for the day.

p.s. NEVER ask a "bird" egg questions. LOL
