1. ## Smarter than a 5th grader

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.

Send it back to let the person know you got it correct.

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

2.

3. 10,990 legs if one of the girls is driving the bus. 10,992 if there is a driver too

4. welll Ok should i post the answer?

oops ...i forgot something.....must be a + or a - or even a x....

9. 7 girls times 2 legs = 14 legs
7girls X 7bags X 7 big cats X 4 legs =343 X 4 legs = 1372
7girls X 7bags X 7 big cats X 7 little cats X 4 legs =343 X 4 legs X 7 = 9604
14+1372+9604=10990

I think this is the riddle site, a new one every week, just FYI. Not affiliated in any way and if your computer blows up from clicking on the site, well...not my fault.
