Chicken and leg eggs

Chicken and leg eggs

José has 6 baskets of eggs. Some eggs are chicken and others are legged. In the baskets there are 6, 12, 14, 15, 23, and 29 eggs respectively.

Then José tells us: “If I sell this basket, I will have twice as many chicken eggs as my legs.”

What basket are you talking about?

Solution

Sell ​​the one with 12 eggs because the total number of eggs is 99, and when you remove some, a multiple number of 3 must remain, in this case 87.
