### 7 girls are in a bus each girl has baskets and each basket has 4 cats each cat has 3 kittens 3 girls are getting off the bus how many legs are in the bus?

7 girls have 14 legs total.
They each have four cats, so that's 28 cats with 112 legs
total.
The 28 cats each have 3 kittens, so that's 84 kittens with 336
legs total.
462 legs total are on the bus.
But then 3 girls with 6 legs get off the bus.
Taking 12 cats with 48 legs off the bus.
And taking 36 kittens with 144 legs off the bus.
Or removing 198 legs from the bus total.
Leaving 264 legs on the bus.

### There is a bus with 7 children inside Each child has 7 bags Inside each bag there are 7 big cats Each big cat has 7 small cats All cats have 6 legs each How many legs are on the bus?

i think the right answer is way too big than just 98 legs.
according to my calculation it should be 14420 legs in the
bus.
Explained:
7 Child = 49 Bags
49 Bags = 343 Big Cats
343 Big Cats = 2401 Small Cats
Total Cats = 2744
Total Cat Legs = 16464
as total legs were asked so the child legs will also be counted.
as a human have to legs so 14 legs should be added too.
so the final answer is 16478 Legs in the bus.
Comment: I don't want to get too involved with this question,
but cats with Six legs!!

### If there are seven girls in a bus and each girl has seven backpacks that contains seven big cats and each big cat have seven little cats how many legs are in the bus?

7 girls times 2 legs each = 14 legs 7 girls times 7 backpacks
each = 49 backpacks 49 backpacks times 7 big cats = 343 big cats
times 4 legs each =1,372 legs 343 big cats times 7 little cats =
2,401 little cats times 4 legs each = 9,604 legs 14 legs + 1,372
legs + 9,604 legs = 10,990 legs The answer is 10,990 legs........
Oh, but wait! There has to has to be a bus driver on the bus if it
is moving (He or she could be off the bus if it is not moving), so
if it's moving or the bus driver is on the bus while it's sitting
still, there are 10,992 legs on the bus.

### There is a bus with 7 children inside Each child has 7 bags Inside each bag there are 7 big cats Each big cat has 7 small cats All cats have 4 legs each so how many legs are there on the bus?

Answer from Amit Jain
7 children => total 7 x 2 Legs => 14 Lags
7x7 Bags => 49 Bags => No Legs
49x9 Big cats => 343 Big cats => 343x4 => 1372 Lags
343x7 Small Cats => 2401 Small Cats => 9604 Legs
Means total legs on Bus are 14+1372+9604 which is 10990
Legs.

=========================================
4 legs per cat. X (7 small cats x 7 big cats = 49) = 196 x 7
bags per child = 1372 x 7 children= 9604 cats legs + (2 legs x 7
children = 14)= 9618 legs in total on the bus.
=========================================
7 children => total 7 x 2 Legs => 14 Legs
7x7 Bags => 49 Bags => No Legs
49x7 Big cats => 343 Big cats => 343x4 => 1372 Legs
343x7 Small Cats => 2401 Small Cats => 9604 Legs
Means total legs on Bus are 14+1372+9604 which is 10990 Legs.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### 5 girls are on a bus every girl has 5 baskets there are 5 cats in each basket and each cat has 5 kittens If the bus stops and 3 girls get off how many legs are on the bus?

The riddle answer is that there are no legs on a bus, just
wheels. The meth answer is complicated by the fact that it
does not mention the "bus driver" who resumably has 2 good
legs.
Math
The total number of (girl) legs is 10, and the total number of
cat legs is (125 cats + 625 kittens) x 4 = 3000 kitty legs. So not
counting the bus driver, there are 3010. Counting the bus driver,
there are originally 3012 legs.
If 3 girls get off with their backpacks, the number falls to
1204 or 1206 with the driver.
---
5 girls = 10 legs
25 baskets
125 cats = 500 legs
625 kittens = 2500 legs
3010 legs in all
No. of legs per girl
1 girl = 2 legs
5 baskets
25 cats = 100 legs
125 kittens = 500 legs
602 legs per girl
With the proper data given, the formula would be: (let N=no. of
legs left after the 3 girls got off the bus, A=all the legs in the
bus, G=no. of legs per girl)
N = A - 3(G)
N = 3010 - 3(602)
N = 3010 - 1806
N = 1204 legs
Thus, 1204 legs are in the bus (1206 legs if the driver is
included),
