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=3140

>hi ramya though this is interesting question but not so tough only a
bit of fast and careful calculations required.... ..here is the answer

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
