1. How Many Legs?

This is a 5th grade math problem.

it is not a trick question.. This is a real maths problem so don't say that a bus has no legs. The bus driver is not part of the equation.

There are 7 girls in a bus.
Each girl has 7 backpacks .
In each backpack, there are 7 big cats.
For every big cat there are 7 little cats.

Question: How many legs are there on the bus?

(Hmm.. no suitable Prefix..)

2. Got this in an email a few weeks ago - devilish!

I'll keep schtum for now.

3. Right, here goes:

(7x7)+7 =56 Cats per bag

56x7 = 392 Cats per girl

392x7 = 2744 Total Cats

2744x4 = 10976 Cat Legs

10976+(2x7) = 10990 total legs

4. BTW: No giving clues as to whether anyone is right or wrong :P

5. Does the RSPCA know these cats are being kept in rucksacks?

6. I wanna know where i can get a bag that big...

7. I like cats

8. No you don't !

9. actually your right I dont. I prefer badgers. Much more friendly.

10. Me neither....Badgers be the way forward...

11. Grrr can we stop the hijacking please :P

12. 7 girls, 7 backpacks = 49 backpacks
49 x 7 big cats = 343 big cats
343 x 7 little cats = 2401 little cats
(2401 + 343) * 4 legs = 10976 legs
7 girls, 2 legs = 14 legs
10976 + 14 = 10990 legs

So 10,990 legs.

(Course, you did say "How many legs are there on the bus", technically the cats legs aren't ON the bus, because they're in a backpack..., only the girls legs are... but since you said it wasn't a trick :P )

13. I reckon 10990

Edit - unless they left their backpacks somewhere else!

14. Yup i think 10990 too

224 legs in 1 Bag
224 x 7 bags x 7 girls = 10,976
10,976 + (7 girls x 2 legs) = 10,990

Go on then tell me im an idiot lol
