Trick Math Problem

Trick Math Problem - 13 March

While boarding a bus you notice that there are 7 girls in the bus already. All the girls have 7 bags each. In each bag there are 7 adult cats. Each of the adult cat have 7 little one. Each of the cat has 4 legs.

Can you calculate the number of legs in the bus ?

1. 9622

also counting me and the driver =)

1. 5506

counting the 343 adult cats, 1029 little cats, 7 girls, me and the driver

2. 7 * 7 * 7 * 7 = 2401 little cats * 4 legs / cat = 9604 legs
7 * 7 * 7 = 343 adult cats * 4 legs / cat = 1372 legs
7 girls * 2 legs / girl = 14 legs
1 me * 2 legs / me = 2 legs

10,992 legs in total

There may be a driver, just like there may be other passengers on the bus, but this isn't specified, so my answer does not include that.

2. I third this answer! Indubitably!

3. buses have no legs

4. 7*7*7*8*4+7*2+2=10992

5. 7 bags * 7 adult cats * 7 little one * 4 legs + 7 girls * 2 legs + 1 self * 2 = 1388 legs

6. Each bag has 7 adult cats, each adult cat has 7 little once,
