The Price of Eggs!
Thanks Rudy



A man walks into a grocery store and asks : "Have you got eggs?".
"Sure," the grocer replies, "right over here."
The man says : "I'll take half of what you have plus half an egg." He pays for the eggs and leaves.

A little while later, a second man enters the store. "Have you got eggs?".
"Sure." the grocer replies, "right over here."
The man says "I'll take half of what you have plus half an egg."
He pays for the eggs and leaves.

Then, a third man enters the store. "Have you got eggs?".
"Sure." the grocer replies, "right over here."
The man says "I'll take half of what you have plus half an egg." He pays for the eggs and leaves.

When the third man leaves, the grocer puts a sign on the front door "OUT OF EGGS TODAY".

Question :  How many eggs did the grocer start with that day and how many did each man buy?
