    pub_shady there are much, much more, try to resolve it on a sheet, you need to read carefully

    240 legs

    7 big cats = 28
    7 small cats/big cat = 49 sml cats = 196 legs
    7 girls = 14 legs

    So far we have 28 + 196 + 14 = 238
    How did I get 240 ? The driver has 2 legs :P

    there you go 240 is the answer

    and the bus is hitech, dont need a driver!

    7girls=7x2=14 legs
    7girls X 7bags =49bags
    49bags X 7big cats =343 big cats = 1372 legs
    343big X 7little =2401 = 9604 legs

    The answer is 120064!
    2 times 7=14girl legs
    7times7=49cats in 1 bag times7=343
    343times7=2401 big cat legs
    2401times7=16807

    If you add the =ing #s up it eguals 120064!

    7girls = 7x2=14
    14x7big cats = 98
    98x7 = 686
    686x4 = 2,744

    7 girls have 14 girl legs
    7 girls x 7 backpacks = 49 backpacks
    7 big cats and 49 little cats = 56
    cats/per backpack
    56 cats with 4 legs = 224 cat legs per backpack
    49 backpacks with 224 cat legs = 10976 cat legs
    10976 cat legs and 14 girl legs = 10990 legs
    (if the bus driver is still at lunch...:-)
    I vote for pub_shady: English - D, Math A
