    A salesman has 6 baskets containing eggs. There are 5,6,12,14,23,29 eggs in 6 baskets respectively. They are either ducks or Hens eggs. The salesman says if I sell one out of the six baskets containing eggs, then I would have chiken eggs twice the no. of duck eggs which basket was Salesman thinking about

    The basket with 29.
    89-29=60
    60/3=20
    14+6=20, so the 14 and 6 are duck eggs
    the rest (except possibly 29) are hen
