No, you forgot the busdriver's legs and the fact that every girl has 7 backpacks, and that for every cat in that backpack there are 7 kittens.. I'm pretty sure the answer is 10992.

edit: it doesn't say anything of a busdriver.. so if there isn't any, then it is 10990!

1 girl= 2legs
7 bakcpacks
1 backpack:
7 cats = 28 legs
49 ktten = 196 legs

so
252 = 1 backpack
so 7 x 252 = 1764 Is 1 girl

so we do 7 x 1764 = 12348 + if busdriver(2)= 12350

It gotta be right now

umm

7x2=14 ( the girls)
7x7=49=number of cats = 49x4 legs= 196

49 cats with 7 kittens each = 49 x7 = 343 (kittens)

so
14 +196 + 343= 553

553 legs?

that right? :?

Aleykum selam,

It's 10990 if there isn't any busdriver. Just saw it didn't state anything.. But I assumed there was one. :-[

Yeah, subhanAllah.. Just made me realize it may seem as much less! I hope I calculated it right, I'm doing it again for the third time just to check..

Unbelivable, I'm doing Maths on my free time. Where's the world going to? lol

so
14 +196 + 343= 553

553 legs?

that right? :?

oh wait actually i missed a step out :P lol :exhausted

343 kittens with 4 legs each = 1372
14+196+1372=1582

so is it not 1582 legs...and if there is a bus driver then `1590 legs?

1 girl has 7 backpacks, in which 7 cats are and for every cat there are 7 kittens. That's the whole secret to actually get it.

Backpack 1 has 7 cats. Cat 1 has 7 kittens. That makes 8 animals (1 cat + 7 kittens). 7 cats X 8 = 56. 56 cats per bag X 7 bags= 392.
392 = is number of animals with every girl. Now that 392 X 7 girls = 2744.
Every animal has 4 legs, so now you take 2744 X 4 = 10976. 7 girls have 2 legs each, it makes 14 girl-legs. 10976 + 14 = 10990.

Am right or wrong? I'll soon fall asleep and don't want this bothering me until the morning! The answer is... ?

Given:

7*2 = 14
********
7 Backpacks = Every backpack = 7 cats
7*7 = 49 cats
49 cats = Every cat = 4 legs
49*4 = 196
*******
196 Cats = Ever cat = 7 Kittens
196*7 = 1372 Kittens
1372 Kittens = Every Kitten = 4 legs
1372*4 = 5488
*******
1 Bus Driver = 2 legs
1*2 = 2
*******
Add everything up
14+196+5488+2= 5,700 Legs

1n One BAG IS 7 CATS WICH MAKES 1 cat with 7 kittens ( so 7 x 4legs =28 legs of the kittens plus 4legs of the cat) so 32 One cat with 7 kittens

32 x 7 cats = 224 legs in one backpack
you have 7 backpacks soo 7x 224 = 1568 + legs of ONE girl (2)= 1570

there is 7 girls so 1570 x 7 =10990 Yep You were right sis Al-Zaara mashallah :D

excluding busdriver :D

BTW if I always Think Like This I would be The smartest Boy in my Town LOL but im not

The question is "How many legs can I count?" I can't even see the blasted bus never mind the legs on the cats in the back packs, so my answer is zero. I can't count what I can't see.

I did a bit of maths so hopefully I get this correct.

7 Girls = 14 legs.

Their exists 7x7 (49) backpacks, each with 7 cats. 7x49 = 343 cats total, so that equates to 1372 legs.

For every cat, theirs 7 kittens, so 343 x 7 = 2401 kittens. Equating to 9604 legs.

Total legs = 10990.

Including drivers legs, would be 10992.

Including the busdriver that makes 62, but is their a busdriver, and there could be more people on the bus, but just the 7 Girls and their 7 cats and their 7 kittens, i think 60.

The way I see it there are:

7 girls for 14 legs
49 Mother cats for 196 legs
343 kittens for 1372 legs

Giving a total of 1582 legs

if you include the busdriver 1584 legs

ADDENDUM: and there dear friends is a practical example of why nobody ever hired me as a mathematican or accountant and explains why I can't balance my check book.

look

7 girls = 7×2= 14 legs

7 girls eachone has 7 bags means 7×7=49 bags and each bag has 7 cats means

49×7= 343 big cats , cats has 4 legs so ,343 big cats×4 legs = 1372 big cats legs

each big cat has 7 small cats means, 343 big cats ×7 small cats = 2401 small cats

small cats has 4 legs means, 2401 small cats × 4 legs= 9604 small cats legs

the bus driver has 2 legs

now we add ;girls legs+big cats legs+small cats legs+the bus driver legs

14+1372+9604+2= 10992 legs in the bus
