If you take the original 48 eggs and divide by the number of chickens,

you get 48 ÷ 6  = 8 eggs per chicken.

Dividing this by the number of days, you get 8 ÷ 4  = 2 eggs per chicken per day.

If each chicken can lay 2 eggs each day, 10 chickens can lay 20 eggs per day.

To get a total of 100 eggs, you need 100 ÷ 20  = 5 days.
