Mind teaser
PostPosted: Mon Dec 24, 2007 4:10 am Reply with quoteBack to top

Try this one. PM me your guess. Please DO NOT post the answer!!!

Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

There are 7 girls on a bus.
Each girl has 7 backpacks.
In each backpack, there are 7 big cats.
For every big cat there are 7 little cats.

Question: How many legs are there in the bus?

It's trickier than it looks.

***I will post the full answer and computation on 12/27***

If it's any consolation, my 15 yr old got this after 1 try (it took me 3).

Think legs. Only hint I'll give.

There are two possible answers, depending on your logic.

Ugh, don't sweat it. I stumped the whole family with this one at our get together tonight, and it took 2 teenagers to figure it out. Rolling Eyes Smile Razz

Yeah, yeah...you gave me the answer before you gave me a third chance. I was only missing a multiplier somewhere. Sad
