    If eggs are 12 cents a dozen, how many can you buy for a dollar?

    You're right, it's 100. There's a lot of people that try to figure out how many twelves are in a hundred though.

    Not in Idaho! I am guessing, but I think it is around 93 eggs when you add in the tax.

    Well, yeah, because they might not sell at that price in smaller quantities. So my answer would be 96, or 8 dozen eggs. Because you're buying them by the dozen.
