Answer: How many legs on the bus?

As mentioned earlier:
This is a 5th grade math problem. This is not a trick question. This is a real math problem so don't say that a bus has no legs. There isn't a bus driver.

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.
A little algebra and a sheet of paper helped me figure this one out.
G * 2 = 14 L
7 G * 7 BP = 49 BP
49 BP * 7 BC = 343 BC
343 BC * 7 LC = 2401 LC

Therefore...

(BC + LC * 4) + (G * 2) = 10990 L
Yonah was right.
