There are 7 girls on a bus.
Each girl is carrying 7 backpacks.
In each backpack, there are 7 big cats.
For each big cat, there is 7 little cats.

How many legs are there?

My answer was 10,990 legs. My teacher said it wasn't right, although it was very close. I don't see how this is the wrong answer though.

    2912. Backpacks don't have legs.

    It's talking about the girls and cats legs? ^^

  • Math -

    Lawls, okay.
    11088.
    FORGET MY FIRST ANSWER.

    How did you get that answer?

  • Math -

    Cats have two legs, and two arms.

    Honestly, I'm not sure. .-. And...I thought they were all legs...

  • Math -

    I did too? I don't think that it is supposed to be a trick question like that though!

    Is this a MATH problem or a RIDDLE?

  • Math -

    As a RIDDLE, the answer is 0, because a bus has wheels instead of legs.

    Math. The girls are on the bus!! And the cats are inside their backpacks. I don't know, it's confusing though. Thanks for trying though!

    But your answer is CORRECT on the math part. .-.

  • Math -

    I thought so, but he said it was close but not exact.

  • Math -

    Maybe you need to add 2 legs for the driver.

  • Math -

    We already asked if there was a driver or anyone else. He said no. He wasn't trying to trick us or anything.

  • Math -

    for each backpack-- 7 big cats
    and 49 little cats
    number of legs in one bagback = 4(7+49) = 224

    but there are 49 backpacks
    so number of catlegs = 224*49 = 10976
    number of girl-legs = 14

    total number of legs = 10976 + 14 = 10990

    The way the question was worded, you are correct.
