There are 7 redheads on a bus. (I like redheads that is why they are on it). Each one of them has a backpack. In each back pack is 7 large cats. Each one of the large cats has 7 small cats. How many legs are on the bus?

This is not a trick question. No there is no bus driver and yes everything has the correct amount of legs.

First one to get it right, I will buy you your drink of choice the next time I see you.

Good luck. Either Post your Response, or PM it to me. I'll announce when I see the right one.

The Answer is 1582. Mini was the first one to get it and I appreciate the correction to my typo Mini.

There are 7 backpacks and each of them contain 56 cats. If you include the redhead, each backpack wearer and her contents contents have 226 legs. There are 7 redheads, so 7 X 226 is 1,582 legs. Can I go double or nothing for how many sets of legs? (Answer: 399)(7 X 57). Let me know if I'm right and if I am, I'll take a Miller Light.

PornoDave has the right answer, and didn't want the drink. He is claiming the bragging rights. Offer is still open for the drink anyone wanna keep trying and none of you are even close yet.

There is the first hint

I knew that I shouldn't have wasted time showing my work. As I was doing it, Mini quick posted the correct answer. Mini, you can have the drink. Maybe I'll get credit for the double or nothing answer.

Showing the wrong work. Keep up the great effort though. I really had to think this one thru. I just wasn't trying to win a drink or beat alot of others.

Why are you reading this, you should be working on the problem.
