    I have in front of me some number of eggs in a pile.

    First I take exactly half of my eggs as well as half of a single egg, and remove them from the pile.

    I then repeat this, removing half of the remaining eggs as well as half of a single remaining egg from the pile.

    Then, counting the number of eggs I have, I find I have exactly 3 left.

    How many eggs did I start out with?

    *Hint: No eggs were broken during this process.

    If I have 13 eggs and remove half of them, I will have 6 and a half. Get rid of the extra half and I have 6 left. What happens when I do the second step?
