The bastard sent me this and apparently I’m not as smart as I think. Help!!!

This is a real math problem so don’t say that the bus has no legs. There is an excel spread sheet attached that requires a password. The password is the answer to the math question. I keep coming up with 9,618 but that’s not right.

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

2 X 7 Girls = 14 legs
7 girls X 7 backpacks X 7 big cats X 4 = 1372 legs
7 girls X 7 backpacks X 7 big cats X 7 little cats X 4 legs = 9604 legs
Total = 10990

Personally I don’t understand how seven girls can carry around seven backpacks each with big cats in ‘em. And what, the busdriver is allowin’ little cats to just run around everywhere?

What I want to know is, just where are the parents and why is the busdriver allowin’ such nonsense!

And people wonder what’s wrong with society these days!

All riddles are. That doesn’t change the fact that the guy on his way to St. Ives was by himself or that the third word in the -gry question is “language.”
