A farmer is taking her eggs to the market in her car, but she is hit by a trailer truck.

Though she is unhurt, all her eggs are broken. So she goes to her insurance agent, who asks how many eggs she had.

She said she doesn’t know, but she remembers from various ways she tried packing them that when she put them in 2’s, there was one left over.

When she put them in 3’s, there was one left over.

When she put them in in 4’s, there was one left over and the same for 5’s and 6’s.

But when she put them in 7’s, they came out even.

How many eggs did she have and how many answers are there?
