Number of Big Cat legs: 343x4=1372*

Number of Little Cats: 343x4=2401
Number of Little Cat legs: 2401x4=9604*

There is a lot of solution for this I tried this solution:

1. 7 x 2= 14 legs
2. 4 x 7=28 x 7= 196 x 7= 1372 big cat legs
3. Then1372 x 7 (I just put 1372 so I don't have to repeat step2)= 9604 small cat legs
4. Add 14 + 1372 + 9604=10990


That's basically it Next Question please

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, and if you want the answer just PM me telling me you want to know or i could just tell you if your wrong or not. 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!



7 girls = 14 legs
each girl has 7 backpacks which makes them have 49 backpacks in total!
each backpack has 7 big cats, 343 cats in total, each cat has 4 legs: 1372
each big cat has 7 small cats 343x7 (2401 small cats), each cat has 4 legs 9604
then total would be 14+ 1372+ 9604=10990


yeh you got it, congrats
