Are you smarter than a 5th grader? This is a 5th grade math problem. If you can open the spreadsheet, you'llsee it's a 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 thata bus has no legs. There is no 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. Question: How many legs are there in the bus? (The number of legs is the password to unlock the Excel sheet. If you openit, add your name, save it and send it on to see who else can unlock it)

2X7 = 14

7x7x7 = 343 x 4 = 1372

343x7 = 2401 x 4 = 9604

14 + 1372 + 9604 = 10990

What's the point of getting on the bus if there's no driver.

This whole theory is flawed

Well, seeing as there are no 5th graders in Ireland, I'd like to think, yes, I am smarter than a non-existent person, especially as I'm good at maths

You're not smarter than my imaginary friend, Brains McEgghead.
