The question reads:
As I was walking to St. Ives, I met a little old man. I gave him half the farm-fresh eggs I was carrying to the market plus half an egg. A bit further along the road, I met a tall young women and gave her half the eggs I had left plus half an egg. When I finally got to the market, I had ten eggs. At no time were any of the eggs broken. How many eggs had I at the beginning?
p.s- I would really appreciate it if I could have an answer before tomorrow at 7:00 am. Because it due tomorrow. Thanks alot!!!
