claimed to be equivalent to two dozen chicken eggs
a) If an ostrich egg really is equivalent to two dozen chicken eggs, and a chicken egg is about 6 centimeters long, about how long is an ostrich egg( to the nearest centimeter)
b) If a robin's egg is 1 cm long, how many of them would you have to scramble to get the equivalent of one chicken egg?
