hen

the '1.5 hens lay 1.5 eggs in 1.5 days' has a much easier solution then given.

If x hens lay 1.5 eggs in 1.5 days, in anologous with
velocity = distance / time,
we have velocity = 1.5 eggs / 1.5 days = 1 egg/day.

That is, 1.5 hens lay 1 egg/day.
Simple math says it takes 1.5 hens to lay 6 eggs in 6 days.
