The surgeon is the mother
If 1.5 hens lay 1.5 eggs in 1.5 days, it must be that one hen would lay one egg in the same time period: 1.5 days. Now, if one hen lays one egg in 1.5 days, it means that one hen would lay only ⅔ of an egg in one day. So the answer is ⅔ of an egg.

The answer is (AxB) (A+B)
So 6 X 3= (6x3) = 18
(6+3) = 9
To get the result you would add the following number to the last result, 20+5=25, 25+6=31 and so on. So what about the answer? 38+9=47? Well it could be, if the rule was to add the last result to the next number. However, 8 is missing. So if the rule was to add the previous result to the next ascending number, to get the right answer you would have to first solve 38+8=46 and then 46+9=55
