The Hen, Egg and Chick puzzle answer.
Study the puzzle on the screen shot below and let's solve it together.
Here's the puzzle:

From the screenshot,
Hen plus hen plus hen = 30,
Hen plus egg plus egg = 20,
Egg plus 2 chicks plus 2 chicks = 9,

Then Hen + a check × egg = ?

This puzzle is going viral on the internet. Solving Math puzzles and Quizes can refresh your memory.

When I first shared this on tweeter, and Facebook many people failed it. Some inboxed me directly asking me to help solve it.

Today I will teach you the tricks in solving this riddle which you can apply to solve any other puzzles. After going via my solving carefully, you should be able to solve any other puzzle easily.

Solution:
I will solve each equation separately and apply BODMAS equation.

Equation one:
Hen + hen +hen =30,
3 hens = 30
Implies Hen =30/3
Implies hen = 10.

Equation two:
Hen + egg +egg= 20.
10 + 2 eggs = 20,
2eggs = 20 - 10
Eggs = 10/2
Egg = 5.

Equation three:
Egg +2 chicks + 2 chicks = 9.
5 + 4 chicks = 9,
4 chicks = 9 - 5
Chick = 4/4
Chick = 1.

Hence, Hen = 10,
Egg = 5,
Chick = 1.

Now I will substitute the values of hen, egg and Chick in the final equation and solve using BODMAS. Let me vividly explain what is BODMAS.

Bookmice is in Mathematical acronym which stands for,
B: Bracket
O: Order
D: Division
M: Multiplication
S : Subtraction.

This acronym is use in solving math problems in the order above. That is from Bracket to Subtraction.

Here's the final equation:
Hen + chick × egg =?
10 + 1 × 5 = ?
10+ 5 = ?
15 = ?
Therefore, the final answer is 15.
