Egg question

I was looking around for molten chocolate cake recipe (there are tons of it).
I got a bit confused with some of the recipe.

There is this recipe which says:
3 eggs
3 egg yolks
but in the video demo she puts in 5 eggs.

There are a few recipe which states the same thing but has different quantities of eggs and egg yolks (ie 2 and 2).

My question is, if i were to follow the recipe, how many eggs would i need? 3 or 6 (3and3)?

6 eggs -- 3 whole eggs and 3 yolks (without the whites).
