    brain tester maths problem (2003)

    I no you will all love this and thought it would give you all a 5 minute breather from excel, so I am posting a little brain tester for you which is harder then you think....

    If you get the answer it unlocks a excel sheet I have, which of course I can't get into, as i can't work out the answer....good luck

    Subject: Maths problem

    This is a 5th grade math problem. If you can open the spreadsheet, you'll see it is a very small list of people who have gotten the correct number. This is not a trick question. This is a real math problem.

    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.

    Did you intend to attach the Excel workbook?
