A farmer walks into a store and heads for the counter. On the counter is a basket of hardboiled eggs. The farmer says to the cashier,"I'll take half of your eggs plus half an egg."
The next day he walks in the store and says to the cashier,"I'll take half of your eggs plus half an egg."
On the third day, the farmer walks into the store and says th the cashier,"I'll take half of your eggs plus half an egg." There are now no more eggs in the basket. How many eggs were there to begin with?
Please explain cause i really don't understand!
