*As I was going to St Ives*

*I met a man with seven wives*

*And every wife had seven sacks*

*And every sack had seven cats*

*And every cat had seven kits*

*Kits, cats, sacks, wives*

*How many were going to St Ives?*

Now how many legs were going to St Ives? Can we adapt this to a bus?

CB - Dec 9th 2008, 08:03 AMsultanontopthe impossible and the obvious.
**As I was going to St Ives....................... St Ives is a place!**

I met a man with seven wives................Note The Man and his Wives were working with their legs!

And every wife had seven sacks............Note Those Sacks were carried and not working!

And every sack had seven cats..............So far those sack was carried then you can not can't the legs!

And every cat had seven kits................Accepted but not working with their legs

Kits, cats, sacks, wives

How many were going to St Ives?........ The man.........1 person but he saw !!!

There are 7\times 7 \:=\:49 bags.

There are: 7 \times 49 \:=\:343 cats

There are: 7\times 343 \:=\:2401 kittens

Therefore the total number of goings is 1 meanwhile 343 cats + 2401 kittens + 1 husband + 7 wives were met along the way going

Now how many legs were going to St Ives? is just 2 Legs meanwhile the follows were met on the road (1 husband + 7 wives * 2 legs = 8 * 2 = 16 legs)

Can we adapt this to a bus? .............No

Thank you very much for your lovely question.

I wish you and your family a very Merry Xmas & Happy New Year in advance.

Stay blessed and your days belong.
