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?
I'll post the answer Tomorrow ;)
(Hmm.. no suitable Prefix..)
Got this in an email a few weeks ago - devilish!
I'll keep schtum for now.
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
BTW: No giving clues as to whether anyone is right or wrong :P
Does the RSPCA know these cats are being kept in rucksacks?
I wanna know where i can get a bag that big...
actually your right I dont. I prefer badgers. Much more friendly.
Me neither....Badgers be the way forward...
Grrr :mad: can we stop the hijacking please :P
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 )
I reckon 10990
Edit - unless they left their backpacks somewhere else!
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 :D
You're an idiot :P
