Ma mere l’oye

Mother Goose has but one eye.
My former teacher is heavy with child.
The son of my sister lives in the city.
He sells wind to buy eggplants for the inn.
In the days before the fish developed thumbs.

If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half

If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half, how many eggs will five hens lay in 6 days?

5 hens would lay 5 eggs in a day and a half.
In 6 days, there are 4 day-and-a-half
5 x 4 = 20
(each hen lays 2/3 egg per day)
