There are 7 girls on a bus
each girl has 7 back pack's
in each back pack is 7 big cats
for each big cat thier are 7 little cats

Question: how many legs are on the bus


7 x 2 = 14
7 x 7 x 7 x4 = 1372
7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 4 = 9604

Total = 10990

nope

7x8 = 56 - no of cats in each bag

56 x 7 = 392 - total number of cats for each girl

392 x 4 = 1568 - total number of cat's legs for each girl

1568 x 7 = 10976 - total number of cats legs

10976 + 14 = 10990 - inc girls legs

2401 little cats with 4 legs each = 9604 legs
343 big cats with 4 legs = 1372 legs
7 girls = 14 legs (unless it's Saturday night and they're legless ;) )

Add together = 10990.
