Pop Friday Morning Math Quiz


This is a 5th grade math problem. This is not a trick question.  This is a real math problem, so don't say that a bus has no legs. And there is no bus driver, so don't add 2 legs.

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?

Please don't post your answer, but feel free to brag if you got it right. And Ross, keep your eyes on your own paper...

Select text between the lines for the answer for answer
7*(7*((7*4)+(7*(7*4))))+7*2 = 10990


[this is good] Ugh, I missed a factor of 7 somewhere and came up woefully short.Guess I SHOULD have tried peeking at my classmates' answers...

Got it in one.  Um, why would an adult get this wrong?  Oh, whoops, sorry Ross.  :-)

What a funny question - got my imagination going wild for a moment there before being able to focus on the question!
