7 girls 2 egs each =14 legs
1 girl, 7 backpacks, 1backpack 7 big cats=49 big cats per girl or 343 total
1big cat=7 little cats, 343 little cats per girl or 2401 little cats total
2401+343=2744x4(number of legs per cat)=10976+14 (7 girls 2 legs a piece)=10990

I got 1582

7girls x 2 legs=14 legs
7 packs x 7 big cats =49 big cats x 4 legs each=196 legs
49 big cats x 7 little cats = 343 little cats x 4 legs each =1372 legs

1372+196+14=1582

unless there is a 3 legged cat somewhere that should be correct.

I bet there is some trick here that we all saw past


There are 7 girls on a bus 7*2=14
Each girl has 7 backpacks ok, makes 49 back packs
In each backpack, there are 7 big cats 49 backpacks *7cats =343 BigCats *4 Legs = 1,372 legs
For every big cat there are 7 little cats 343 BigCats * 7 little cats = 2,401 little cats* 4 Legs= 9,604


14
196
1,372
9,604 +
11,186 Legs

But each girl has 7 backbacks and each only has 7 big cats, discard the little cats which are not on the bus
for a total of 1,372 Legs


At least thats what makes sense to me...

It says 7 girls are on a bus, maybe the cats and packs are on the side of the road
93-SSE your right, I had a brain fart and 2 kids bugging me as I was trying to figure it out.
