Several pieces of bread were in the store. Half of them plus a half of bread bought a cookbook. Of the remaining bread, half of it plus half of the bread was bought by Mr. Novák. The last bread was bought by Ms. Small. How many breads were in the store at the beginning?

Result

n =  7

#### Solution:

(n/2 + 1/2) + (n-(n/2 + 1/2))/2 + 1/2 + 1 = n

0.5n = 3.5

n = 7
