A chef is attending a big weekend food fair. He is famous for his egg dishes. He knows that he will need 496 eggs for all of the dishes he will make. He knows that he will lose 10% of the eggs, and has ordered enough eggs so that he will end up with the 496 that he needs. He has ordered 551 eggs delivered to his kitchen. What formula did he use to come to the conclusion that he will need 551 eggs for the weekend? I await your reply. Al Charles
