Best Answer

The riddle answer is that there are no legs on a bus, just wheels. The meth answer is complicated by the fact that it does not mention the "bus driver" who resumably has 2 good legs.

Math

The total number of (girl) legs is 10, and the total number of cat legs is (125 cats + 625 kittens) x 4 = 3000 kitty legs. So not counting the bus driver, there are 3010. Counting the bus driver, there are originally 3012 legs.

If 3 girls get off with their backpacks, the number falls to 1204 or 1206 with the driver.

5 girls = 10 legs

25 baskets

125 cats = 500 legs

625 kittens = 2500 legs

3010 legs in all

No. of legs per girl

1 girl = 2 legs

5 baskets

25 cats = 100 legs

125 kittens = 500 legs

602 legs per girl

With the proper data given, the formula would be: (let N=no. of legs left after the 3 girls got off the bus, A=all the legs in the bus, G=no. of legs per girl)

N = A - 3(G)

N = 3010 - 3(602)

N = 3010 - 1806

N = 1204 legs

Thus, 1204 legs are in the bus (1206 legs if the driver is included),

Work it out backwards... 1 cat has 2 kittens (which equals 3) and there are 2 cats with 2 kittens in each basket so there is 6 in 1 basket alone. There are 3 baskets so each girl will have a total of 18 cats. So therefore, between all 4 girls, there are 72 cats.\ :D

If the question is asking how many kittens there are, my answer is 48 KITTENS.

The answer given is 364 but I do not agree. There are 9 baskets each with 3 cats in (=27 cats). Each cat has 3 kittens (=81 kittens). There are therefore 108 cats/kittens (=432 legs). 1 girl + bus driver left on bus (=4 legs). The number of legs is 432. Assume 364 is correct. 364 - 4 = 360 legs (girl + bus driver) 360/4 = 90 (cats/kittens) 90/9 baskets = 10 cats/kittens per basket, which is not as the riddle states.

None. If I saw, that would be rude. Pervert.

4 girls= 8 legs 3(2 cats= 8 legs+2 kittens= 8 legs) 8+48 = 56 there are 56 legs..

All of them.
