1. I got this puzzle in an e-mail, the answer of which is the password to a file attached (it is safe). The answer I get is 9618, but it can't open the file. Am I doing something wrong?
Scenario:
There is a bus with 7 girls inside,
Each girl has 7 bags,

Inside each bag, there are 7 Big cats,
Each Big cat has 7 small cats,
All cats have 4 Legs each!

Question: How many Legs are there inside the bus?

2.

3. Perhaps you're meant to include the bus driver.

I'd say 14.

I'd assume the rest are inside bags. I found it interesting & humorous for the question to indicate cats are four-legged. What a revelation The question also does not indicate whether the bags are inside the bus.

5. I tried both of those, no dice. I noticed the useless mension that cats have four legs too, but thought they included it to draw your attention away from the girls' legs. It might be a prank. :?

You forgot to count the legs of the big cats which would be another 7 x 4= 28 more legs per bag equalling 28legs x 49bags or an extra 1372 legs.

Answer is 9618 + 1372= 10990

7. Ah yes. How stupid of me! It worked! :wink:
