When you say "two plus half the remaining rabbits," do you literally mean that, or do you mean "half the remaining rabbits plus two?" For example, if there were 10 rabbits would the first megamind buy 2 + 8/2 = 6 rabbits, or 10/2 + 2 = 7 rabbits?

Literally, for sure. Why?:)
So it would be 2 + 8/2 = 6
