Friday Puzzle

I just got forwarded this Maths puzzle and the grey cells must still be functioning because I got it right!

There are 7 girls in a bus.

Each girl has 7 backpacks.

In each backpack, there are 7 big cats.

For every big cat there are 7 little cats.

Question: How many legs are there in the bus ?


Will post the answer in my comments at some point....


  1. Hmm this is a trick question, right? It has to be. Like that old 'as I was going to St Ives...' one.

    It's too early in the day for this :P *ahem*

  2. Lol, no it's not a trick question!

  3. 10990?
    Or does it depend on whether all the cats have a full comliment of legs?
    Or have I got it wrong anyway? It made my head hurt.....

  4. 1568?

    Unless any of the girls are Heather Mills, of course :)

  5. Justme gets an A+ for getting the right answer!

    D minus for Red Squirrel methinks! :-)

  6. Gah, didn't read 7 backpacks line.

    I'm not stupid, I'm blind :(
