I got this in an email:

This is great…

This is a 5th grade math problem. If you can’t stand word math problems,

Just delete now. If you can open the spreadsheet, you’ll see it’s a very

Small list of people who have gotten the correct number. THIS IS NOT A

TRICK QUESTION.

This is a real math problem so don’t say that a bus has no legs.

The bus driver is not part of the equation.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 ON THE BUS???The number of legs is the password to unlock the Excel sheet.

If you open it, add your name and send it on to see who else can unlock it.Good Luck! It Works.

I’m not an Excel user, so I had to download Microsoft’s Excel Viewer thingy. I got the correct answer, but I don’t like email forwards (tho this one is clever.) But I did enjoy it – and I got it right.

So, here’s my plan: If you think you know the correct answer, enter it as the password **here** and leave a comment.

Meow! Get to it!

Well math has never been my thing and i guess it still isn’t. Thanks for the frustration Fee! lol

I did it, I did it! Somewhat pathetically, this gave me an emormous boost of self-esteem at the beginning of my day. Thanks! ðŸ™‚
