Also don't forget how can there be 7 cats in each backpack and each cat having 7 lil ones, if you are being logical.

 

Riddles are illogical...lol

THERE ARE 7 GIRLS ON A BUS

 

EACH GIRL IS CARRYING 7 BACKPACKS

IN EACH BACKPACK THERE ARE 7 BIG CATS

 

FOR EVERY BIG CAT THERE ARE 7 LITTLE CATS

 

HOW MANY LEGS ARE ON THE BUS?

LET ME SEE THE ANSWERS AND ILL LET YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE RIGHT OR WRONG

 

:sl:

 

Lets give this a shot.

 

1) 7 girls on a bus, each girl is carrying 7 backpacks. That means for one girl there are 7 backpacks. Each girl has 2 legs each, therefore 7 x 2= 14

 

2) In each backpack there are 7 big cats, so that is (7 x 7)= 49, therefore each girl is carrying 49 big cats in her 7 backpacks. 49 big cats x 7 girls = 343.

 

3) 343 big cats x 4 legs = 1372

 

4) For every big cat there are 7 little cats, therefore....343 big cats x 7 little cats = 2401.

 

5) 2401 little cats x 4 legs = 9604

 

9604+

1372+

14= 10990 legs

 

:sl:

I find it strange that each girl can carry that much weight, they must be strong lol!

 

Btw, I had quite a few attempts at it and got it all muddled up and wrong. If this is a trick question then 10990 must also be wrong cuz I can't think of any other way of solving this riddle!

I got the same as Aamina on my second attermp my first attempt was 4000 and something.

 

My math:

 

7 girls = 14 legs

7 big cats x 7 back packs x 7 girl = 7^3 = 343

343 cats = 1372 legs

 

7sc x 7bc = 7sc X 343 = 2401

2410 small cats = 9604 legs

 

9604 + 1372 + 14 = 10990 legs

Whoever made this riddle didnt think about how ridiculous it is that they can all fit on a bus is.

And whats more ridiculous is the size of these girls. My math estimates they each weigh are 24 ton (53000 pounds).

 

My math:

A big cat weighs ~8kg and a small cat weighs ~4kg therefore each girl is carrying 12.3 tons and considering you would be struggling to carry more 1/2 your body weight. that would mean the girls would have to be at least 24 ton each.

 

Yeah I'm bored :sl:

Well, I do want to make sure that my answer is accurate and I want to weed out any trickery in the wording of the question that 'how smart are you' questions tend to have. So far 1 of my 10 questions was answered. Once the other 9 are cleared up, I can provide an accurate answer.

Come, now, Crunchy Cat. Riddles are intended to be vague and misleading!

 

Twoswordali, are you sure the riddle is not referring to the "legs" of the bus itself? If not, then I'm sure we're all curious as to what the answer is.

To Twoswordali: I have a question intended to remove some of the vagueness / misleading-ness of the riddle.

That was my reply to the riddle, and not a request to simplify it. I stated in my first post that my answer is 4 legs, which twoswordali must not have seen. Therefore, I asked him to verify whether or not it is correct.

 

Nice one though!

7 X 2 (each girl has 2 legs)

 

7 X 7 X 7 X 4 (each girl has 7 backpacks with 7 big cats with 4 legs)

 

7 X 7 X 7 X 7 X 4 (each girl has 7 backpacks with 7 big cats with 7 small cats with 4 legs)

 

Mix in a bowl, place in a 180 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes, and BANG!

 

10990 legs.

 

This was done in 2 attempts, the first time I didn't see that each girl has 7 backpacks.

 

 

And you sure like playing devils advocate Crunchy Cat.
