I've not heard this one before, but heres my answers ....

Excluding the bus driver, if none of the girls have feet on the chairs, or are one legged or anything like that...

There are 14 legs on the bus, the rest are in the back packs?

14 not including the driver. only the first line states that the girls are on the bus. the other lines just state what the girls have, not where it is.

I wanted to be awkward :P

The answer has got to be 14
It says there are 7 girls on the bus. There is no mention of the seven girls actually having the backpacks with them on the bus.

I received this weeks ago. I believe its in an excel spreadsheet where you have to enter the correct answer. I never got it right and gave up in the end. A friend of mine's an accountant and probably better at numbers than me. I'll ask him :)

seat legs ?
Am presuming the girls would be sitting down if they got on a bus so does this include or exclude any seats that are on the bus , as they normally have legs.

As there was no mention of seats ( not sure ) possibly looking / reading too much into it lol doh !

Just waiting to find out the answer

If its a trick then = 0 (buses don't have legs)

If its not a trick I reckon its 10,990

I still like the answer 14. Even if the backpacks have been taken on to the bus, the cats legs are not touching/on the bus they are touching/on the backpacks, so only 14 legs, those of the girls, are actually on/touching the bus?

Although I do like the idea of seats having legs...
