A boy, walking home some ducks, was asked how many he had. He replied,
"When in line, there are two ducks ahead of a duck, two ducks behind a duck, and one duck in the middle." How many ducks had he?


Hint

Ducks like to swim. Not a good hint you say? Well I guess you are right about that. OK, pay attention to the commas. Each statement between commas should be considered separately. And do not read it as "at least" two ducks ahead of "at least" one duck, etc. It has all the words it needs already in it.
