A man was carrying some eggs with him. He sold 1/2 of all the eggs he had and 1/2 of an egg to a customer. He sold 1/2 of the remaining eggs he had and 1/2 of another egg to another customer. To the third customer, he sold 1/2 of the remaining eggs and 1/2 of an egg. All of his eggs had been sold to the 3 customers. How many eggs did he originally have if he hadn't broken any eggs?
