    Found this one in a riddle book I have :].

    The answer is 7 eggs. The first person buys one half of his eggs plus one half of an egg. Thats 3 1/2 + 1/2 which makes 4, leaving 3 eggs.
    The second man buys one half of his eggs and one half of an egg. Thats 1 1/2 + 1/2 equalling 2 eggs. This leaves him with 1 egg.
    The final man buys half of his eggs and one half of an egg. A half and a half makes 1. This leaves him with no eggs.

    :]...

    Okay, okay. The answer to the riddle is an odd number. If you take half of an odd number, you'll get a number and a half. (Half of 7 is 3 and a half)

    So, each person takes a half of all the mans eggs, with half of an egg.
    (3 and a half plus a half = 4) No eggs are broken.

    Is that a little clearer?

    If he has 5 eggs, he gives half of his eggs(2.5) and half of an egg (0.5)

    (2.5) + (0.5) = (3)

    Then the next person buys the remaining egg(0.5) and half of another(0.5)

    (0.5) + (0.5) = (1)

    Then the last person buys the remaining eggs(0.5) and half of an egg(0.5)

    (0.5) + (0.5) = (1) -------------------------> 3 + 1 + 1 = 5

    That what I got, im not sure tho. But anyway, just wanna get money

    Half of 3 is 1.5

    Going by your theory...

    2.5 + 0.5 = 3.

    1.5 + 0.5 =2

    1.0+ 0.5 =1.5

    Wrong.

    okay... *sigh* I'll try to re-iterate what he was saying. half of 7 is 3 and a half. if you add 1 half to that, it equals a whole number (4) so none of the eggs are broken. get it? I took AP calculus when I was in High School so if you think this riddle is hard, be prepared for some that are much harder if you ever take harder math than you are now. I don't know any good riddles mself or I'd post one. later. hope I helped solve your dilemma.
