2 dozen.

If you increase both the number of hens and the amount of time available four-fold, the number of eggs increases 16 times. 16 x 1.5 = 24.

#2. If my calculator can display 10 digits, how many different 10-digit numbers can I type using just the 0-9 keys once apiece, and moving from one keypress to the next using the knight’s move in chess (the L-shape of one square up and two across, two squares down and one across, two squares up and one across, etc).

#2. How many different 10-digit numbers can I type by moving my finger like a knight in chess?

You can form the numbers 5034927618 and 5038167294. You can also form their reverses: 8167294305 and 4927618305.

Hence four different numbers can be made.

The key point is to realize that the number must start or end on the ‘5’ key, followed/preceded by the ‘0’ key, otherwise, there is no way of using all ten keys during the route.

#1. 2 + 2 gets the same answer as 2 x 2, but can you find a set of three different whole numbers whose sum is equal to their total when multiplied?
