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 in the bus ?


I got the answer in the end :D
It is just a 5th grade math problem, though.

Just read the question again. It could be a very tricky one.

If the bus driver is included, I should add 2 + 10990 = 10992

I wonder what I am doing wrong. I am getting less than you guys...

7 x 2 = 14 (girls' legs)
7x 7 = 49 (number of backpacks)
49 x 7 =343 (number of big cats)
343 x 4 = 1372 (number of big cats' legs)
343x7= 2401(little cats)
2401x4 = 9604 (little cats' legs)
14 + 1372 +9604 = 9755 legs (plus 2 maybe for the driver)
EDIT 10990!!
I stuffed up on the adding of the answers!!
