Big Grin Math problem

My Mother was sent this problem, the link to the answer did not work, but I thought I would let all of you try to figure it out. It is suppose to be a 5th grade problem.

On a bus there were
7 girls each girl had 7 back packs.
Each back pack had 7 large cats.
Each large cat had 7 small cats.
The bus driver was not on the bus.
How many legs were on the bus.

7 girls = 14 legs 7 girls X 2 backpacks X 7 large cats X 7 small cats X 4 legs = 2744 legs + 14 legs (on the 7 girls) = 2758 legs.

But how many legs were on the bus?







NONE; busses don't have legs.

7 girls x 2 legs = 14
7 large cats x 4 legs = 28
Each large cat had 7 little cats (kittens) so 7 big x 7 small = 49 small cats x 4 legs = 196

My total is 238 legs altogether, 7 backpacks and 4 wheels on the bus




.....

And if the bus driver was on that there bus, it would make it, 240 legs

The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round, all the day long

Girls = 7 x 2 legs each (presumably) = 14.

Large cats = 7 girls with 7 sacks each = 49, x 7 cats each = 343 x 4 legs each = 1372.

Small cats = 7 girls x 7 sacks x 7 cats x 7 kits each = 2401 x 4 legs each = 9604.

Total legs = 9604 + 1372 + 14 = 10990.

But there are no legs on the bus; they're inside the bus.


There's also an older version that goes:-

As I was going to St Ives
I met a man with 7 wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits.
Kits, cats, man & wives,
How many were there going to St Ives?

Over at the NKT, you did not give us the same numbers.

First, you gave us

7 Girls
2 Backpacks
7 Cats
7 Kits

Then you gave us
7 Girls
7 Backpacks
7 Cats
2 Kits

Then you said no one got the same answer as the Star Trek group.

But...how could we, if we don't have the same information?

So; the girls, sacks, cats & kits are all sitting in an n-dimensional space with a few random atoms circulating in it?

But then the girls, sacks, cats & kits are also randoms collections of atoms circulating in an n-dimension space.


And so are we.

You can talk to yourself as long as you don't LISTEN to yourself. Trust me, that would only get you into trouble.

I have another question.

How do you divide negative numbers. I can not remember.

Same way as positives.

If both top numeral (numerator) and bottom numeral (divisor) are positive OR negative: the answer is positive.

If you have one of each (either way over): then the answer is negative.
