This math problem circulated through email at work the other day and I thought I would give you geeks a shot at it.  Leave a comment with your answer and I’ll tell you if you’re right.  By the way, I couldn’t get it, but I am really bad in math so that doesn’t say much.  There is no secret here, it’s all in the problem, you don’t add 2 legs for the bus driver or something, just go with what you see.  Now, here’s the problem….

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?
