  2. Answer is 2802
    Explain....
    Kitten in one bag=7*7=49
    Total in one bag(7Cats+49Kittens)=49+7=56
    Total in 7 bags(49Cats+343Kittens)=56*7=392
    Total At one Wife(7Bags+49Cats+343Kittens)=7+392=399
    Total At 7 Wife (49Bags+343Cats+2401Kittens)=399*7=2793
    Total to St. Ives=1(me)+1(man)+7(wives)+2793(49 bags+343 Cats+2401 Kittens)=2802

    4. You only saw the man. It doesn't say that he had his seven wives and their pets with him.... and it doesn't say the man with seven wives was going that way either. 'I am the one going to St. Ives'.

      Delete
    5. there is only 1 person because there all in a sack in one mans hand

      Delete
  10. I don't understand how there is enough information given to determine the correct answer. Did the storyteller see the man and his wives beside the road going nowhere? Did he overtake them and pass them and all were on the road to/towards St. Ives? Was the man and his wives going the opposite direction away from St. Ives?

    ReplyDelete
  11. one man is described with above details,but he is only going

    ReplyDelete
  12. 1 i think its funny that the first 2 guys put loads of calculations and stuff like that lol :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it never specifies that they were going the opposite direction out of St.Ives. Therefore you could be wrong and you could be right, not enough info. was given.

      Delete
  13. the "I". because you don't know whether the man, 7 wives, 7 sacks, 7 cats and 7 kittens are going to St. Ives too

    ReplyDelete
  14. Nobody is going because how do they even get there

    1. Well you see a train in traveling west at *****, That shit dosnt matter, its one lol

      Delete
  15. the correct answer is 64 the wrnog answer is not in the high range of the 200s my specific range for the answer is 50-60 because sacks are traveling items so there are a total of 49 kitens, 7 adult cats, 7 wives, and one husband so ANSWER:64 49+7+7+1=64

    ReplyDelete
  16. The cats and kittens and sacks wouldn't count because they aren't "people"

    Not enough information is given on the direction the man with 7 wives is going so it's hard to determine if it's 1 or 7

    ReplyDelete
  17. 1, you never said the man, his wives, cats, and kittens were also going to St. Ives. The narrator is the only one going there.

    ReplyDelete
  18. only 1 the man who saw.... coz there is no info. given wheather they were on d same way.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Only one person is going to St. Ives. He only saw the man.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Only him the answer is 1

    ReplyDelete
  21. You are the only one thtas going becuase you didn't say that the people you saw were going to St. Ives with you or anything. I'm really samrt. I am 9 and I figured it out by MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. i am alone going to st,, i found them on the way

    ReplyDelete
  24. I see a lot of wrong answers.. I'm not gonna figure it out. Note it didn't include the man, and it said Kitten, not kittens. Unless kitten in the plural of kitten.

    ReplyDelete
  25. 1 is the correct answer, no dip. The speaker is the onlyy one going to St.Ives. Plus it says he meets a man but the man could go any direction (toward St.Ives or leaving St.Ives). So both 1 and 1 + (9*9)*((9)* (((9))))).

  26. i hate this thing

    ReplyDelete
  27. im the only one going i was on my way there

    ReplyDelete
  28. there is only 1 person because the riddle never stated that the 2nd grounp was going. it simply stated in the first sentence that only YOU were going.

  29. tere were 28 things oing to st ive

    ReplyDelete
  30. 1+(7*7)+(7*7)+(7*7)+7=155
    including u/interviewer its 156 :)
    on the other hand, if they all were not going, its only u dear :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. There is no clear answer. This riddle is poorly worded. The reader can't tell who is or is not on there way to St. Ive's. The only definitive answer is 1, the narrator. However, there is no reason not to assume that the others may be on their way as well.

    ReplyDelete
  32. If they all are going to st.Ive's the answer is

    1(man) + 1(man)+ 7(wifes) + 7*7*7(cats)+7*7*7*7(kittens)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Its 1, cuz u saw the rest of them tht doesnt mean they were going also.

    ReplyDelete
  34. 2401 bnecause 7*7=49 and 7*7=49 so 49*49=2401

    Zeus: I forgot about the man.
    McClane: What man? Fuck the man! We got ten seconds here!
    Zeus: He said, "how many were going to St. Ives," right? The riddle begins, "As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives!" The guy and his wives aren't going anywhere.
