Lots of Eggs

The number of eggs in a basket doubles every minute. If it’s full of eggs in an hour, when was the basket half full?

At 59 minutes. The eggs double every minute, so half full would be a minute before it was full.

Assuming the basket started with a single egg, after doubling every minute for 60 minutes there would be 1,152,921,504,606,850,000 eggs. So the real question would be “how big does the basket need to be?”
