    Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader?

    Anyone up for a challenge???
    Can You Do It?
    ---
    You need to come up with the correct number to open the attachment.

    Good luck with this and have fun!

    This is a 5th grade math problem.
    If you can't stand word math problems, just delete now.
    If you can open the spreadsheet, you'll see it's a very small
    list of people who have gotten the correct number.

    This is not a trick question.
    This is a real math problem so don't say that a bus has no legs.

    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?

    The number of legs is the password to unlock the Excel sheet.
    If you open it, add your name and send it on to see who else can unlock it.
    Once you solve it and open the spreadsheet, save the new spreadsheet with your name in it, and copy the info above and attach the new spreadsheet.

    Post here to let me know you figured it out.
    HINT: Forget about the driver.

    you messed that up JB, the attachment is in your AOL mail... so no way we can even try. But for the math minded it shouldnt be too hard..the answers I THINK (then again I might not be smarter than a 5th grader) is 10990.

    7 girls have 7 backpacks each (49 backpacks total)
    for every big cat there are 7 little cats (y + (y x 7)) where y = # of big cats. in each backpack there is 7 big cats and 49 small cats (56 cats per backpack)
    so total # of cats would be 2744 (49 bp's x 56 cats)
    # of legs for cats = 10976 (# of cats x 4)
    # of legs from girls = 14
    Total # of legs should = girls legs + cats legs = 10990

    May you live your life as you need. Doing the things you have to. But always take the time each day to enjoy something. The smell of a flower, your family, a well placed shot in the heart of a terrorist.
