I was looking for the moral of the story.

AND

I was more concerned for the safety of the girls and how to control the smell.

AND

My calculator is a "secret santa" gift.

AND

Who's to blame for this mortgage thing I've been hearing about? That is what we should be talking about, not some stupid logic question. (Of course, had I gotten it right, it would be a GREAT logic question).

There are 7 major investors on Wall Street, with 2 controlling executives each.
Each investor has 7 major lending channels.
In each channel, there are 7 big lenders.
For every big lender there are 7 little conduits.
Each of the lending channels, lenders and conduits has 4 major executives.

Question: How many a**holes are going to get fired out of this mess?


Okay, I re-worded it. Better?

It's officially 12/27, but I won't give the complete answer yet.

Just the word formula....

You have 7 with 2

... that have 7 containing 7 (each of which has 7 more) all of which have 4

Anyone who guessed 4 digit answers was way short.

If you added the "Bus Driver" or "Bernanke", I'll give credit for 2 legs off.

This scenario or previous, here's the answer:

7 x 2 = 14
7 each have 7 big + 7 little. That's 7 sets of 8 cats per times 7
And of course, each has 4.
So, (7*2)+7*(7*7*4*(1big+7little)) = 10,990
The answer is: 10,990

Legs or A**holes - pick your version.

Bet it ain't too far off the actual firing ratios (for the A**holes).
