Get the freedom to save as many mails as you wish. Click here to know how. - total number of cats : 686

so total number of legs of the cats will be : 686*4 = 2744

number of legs for the 2 girls is : 4

so the total number of legs in the bus is 2744 + 4 = 2748

But if we consider the driver of the bus too, then there will be 2

legs in addition. Then the total number of legs will be 2750. - the ans is 10990*2 legs

1 small cat=4 legs

7 small cat=28 legs

1 big cat carries 7 small cat-> 28+4 =32 total legs

7 big cats=7*32=224 legs

1 bag has 7 big cats=224 legs

7 bags=224*7=1568

1 girl carries 7 bags=1568

total legs for 1 Girl=1568+2=1570

2 Girls=1570*2=3140On Jan 1, 2008 4:54 PM, puneet dhingra <puneet_dhingra266@...> wrote:There are two girls in a bus.solution

no. of girls = 2 , legs = 2*2=4

each girl has 7 bags

no. of bags =14

each bag has 7 big cats

total number of big cats = 14*7=98 ,so no. of legs of big cats =

98*4=392

each big cat has 7 small cats so no. of small cats =98*7=686

there for , no. of legs of small cats =686*4=2744

now add all the legs present in the bus = 4+392+2744=3140

i hope this is the answer
