ok, read the question wrongly. The answer should be 10990.

(7x7+7)x7x7x4+7x2=10990

correct? :>

tangsueean♥ said...

7girls = 14 legs
7 big cats =28 legs
7x7small cats= 49small cats = 196 legs
total legs = 14+28+196 = 238 legs!!

eeyer tell la i really give up liao :(

unless there was no little cats, cause either the cats are male or kittens havent born out yet..lol in that case the number of legs would be 14+28=42..which is not the answer either..ish lost sheep sis faster tell!!!

tangsueean♥ said...

oohhh
wait
10990

tangsueean♥ said...

=__= eunice lee yi wah..why i so dumb wan?

Eunice said...

haha..yeah..!! the answer has been revealed..lol..it's 10990..hehe..

bravo jnwk!!! haha. dunno bout ur equation thingy..too lazy to check..final answer's more important..no reward too bad..hehe..

sue ean did u actually get it urself or u saw the answer adi ?haha..u're not dumb la...u just didnt read the question properly..hehe..interesting?? gd try anyway..haha..i got 238 before also...shows it's normal..haha..

Caryn said...

i use the same method wert....
lazy to count d la..
tsk tsk

Eunice said...

haha..why la caryn sounds so dissatisfied??haha..kk..elt me show u..gd ting i still have the so called working..haha

girls = 14 legs

7 bags X 7 girls = 49 bags
49 bags X 7 big cats = 343 big cats
343 X 4 = 1372 legs

big cat = 1372 legs

343 big cats X 7 = 2401 small cats
2401 X 4 = 9604

small cat = 9604 legs

total : 14 + 1372 + 9604 = 10990

get it?hehe..

tangsueean♥ said...
