A friend of mine sent this in an email - I got it right - was wondering how many of you still remember 5th grade math?
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?

If you are saying legs in the bus only the girls legs will be 14, and the cats legs will be 28 so total will be 42 but that will not be the corret answer because the driver has got 2 legs too so answer will be 44.
