Children's candies

If a child and a half eats a candy and a half every day and a half,

How long will it take four and a half children to eat four and a half candies?

Solution

If every child and a half takes a day and a half to eat a candy and a half, four and a half children will also take a day and a half in eating four and a half candies since the number of children and consumption are both multiplied by 3.
