well my mom gave me this question from a friend of hers and its an actual problem in 5th grade and i think its probably related to the show, "are you smarter than a fifth grader" but let see if anyone can get it, the thing took me 3 tries and then i finally got the answer cause i needed to enter in a password to this other thing which was the answer to this question

This is a 5th grade math problem.

If you can't stand word problems, just delete now.

This is not a trick question. This is a real math problem so don't say that a bus has no
legs.

Read carefully. (The bus driver doesn't count either).

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?

The number of legs is the password to unlock the Excel sheet.

If you open it, add your name and send it on to see who else can unlock it.

good luck!

.............the answer is 10,990
