Are YOU Smarter then a 5th Grader?

There are 7 girls on 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?
This is a real math problem so don't say that the bus has no legs.

So tell me what your guess is and I'll reveal the answer later on...

I'll take a shot at it...

7 girls'legs= 14 legs
7 girls x 7 backpacks= 49 x7cats= 343 x4cat legs= 1372,
343 big cats x 7little cats= 2401 x4cat legs=9604

total legs:
1372 big cat legs + 9604 little cat legs + 14 girl legs= 10990 legs

10,990 legs?

Hopefully I at least get some credit for showing my work if I'm wrong~! ;)

There's probably something super obvious about this question that I can't see that makes me dunt, dunt, dunt-WRONG!

I'm curious if the bus is moving or not. Because if it is, the answer would be 10,992 legs as one would have to count the legs of the bus driver (if this were to be a legal moving bus). Unless of course the bus driver was an amputee, then the number of legs would be 10,991. This question would be better off stating that the 7 girls are waiting for a bus. This would avoid the driver confusion in my opinion.
