alright meg. I know you were a psych major so we'll walk through this.
in each backpack there are 7 big cats (7x4=28 legs) and 49 small cats (49x4=196 legs). So 224 cat legs in all in each backpack. And each girl has 7 backpacks(224x7=1,568). So each girl is walking around with 1,568 cat legs (weird). Plus her own two (1,570). And there are 7 girls (multiply by seven to get 10,990).
that is funny... i went the other way. i had 7 girls with 7 BP = 49 bp... each with 7 big cats = 343 big cats, each with 7 small cats = 2401 small cats

So how did you get 70?

= ((14*2)+(343*4)+2404*4))
=(28+1372+9604)
= 10,990
7(2)+7(7(7*4+7*7*4)))=10990.
#girls(2 legs) + (#girls(# backpacks(#bigcats x legs + (#littlecats)x legs)))=total #legs.
I must admit it took me a good five minutes to work it all out, but I didn't use a calculator. Hee.
Wow, I really cannot resists a math problem, can I? Even if it's solved.
