Should be pretty easy, just think through it logically
there are 7 girls,.... so 14 legs
each girl has 7 backpacks with 7 big lions
so there are 7*7*7 or 343 big lions...each with 4 legs.... 1372 legs
each of the 343 big lions has 7 little lions
so 2401 little lions has four legs... so 9604 legs
so the answer to this rather silly question is
14 + 1372 + 9604 legs
= 10990 legs
