The answer to this puzzle is 48. If 3 hens lay 3 eggs in 3 days, that means that 12 hens lay 48 eggs in 12 days.
To get to the solution, it is best if you make the original statement easier for you. Since 3 hens lay 3 eggs in 3 days, this means that 1 hen lays 1 egg in 3 days.
If well follow the simplified statement, this would mean that 1 hen lays 4 eggs (4 x 1) in 12 days (3 x 4). If we have 12 hens and 12 days, this means that we get 12 x 4 (48) eggs in the end.
