As+Ls=2100

Ls=large spider as=average sized spider

Ls=20As

so

as+20as=2100

21as=2100

as=100

The average sized spider lays 100 eggs at one time

let the no. of eggs laid by average side spider=x

given, 20x= 2100

divide both sides by 20

20x/20 = 2100/20

x =105

. .

. the no. of eggs laid by an average side spider = 105 eggs
