- There are 7 girls in 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?

I got as far as 7 x 7 = 49 before I had to bust out the calculator. I can no longer do simple multiplication in my head. Give me 2's, 5's, 10's, I'm good. Start asking me about 3's and 8's and 7's and I am going to need to cheat. I think this was a question from "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?". I haven't ever seen the show, and if it's going to make me feel this dumb, I never will. I just want to say that I'm sorry to everyone for letting you down. I think I'm going to join the circus now. I hear FSU's is good, and I think I missed my calling as a trapeze artist. Or maybe a tiger trainer. Or something.

Well, what's the answer? I purposely took classes in college that required as little math as humanly possible. That's why I have a degree in Elementary Education. Once you get past the basic long division, it's on to the middle school teachers' responsibilities. I'm done-zo.

392?

Also, my word verification that I have to type is phumk. I thought that was funny.
