Puzzle for the day

Received via e-mail today:

Answer the following math problem and you will be able to open the attachment.

Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

There are 7 girls on a bus (only the girls, no driver).
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 in the bus?

The number of legs is the password to unlock the attached Excel spreadsheet.

If you open it, add your name and send it on to see who else can unlock it.

It can be done.


If you want the spreadsheet e-mailed to you so you can try to unlock it, leave a comment here in my blog with your e-mail address.

Fear not, your e-mail address will not be published here to protect your privacy. I will only use it to send you the spreadsheet. I hope you will keep my e-mail address private as well.
