A man was going to Bahia with his seven sisters. Each sister carried seven boxes, each box had seven cats, each cat had seven puppies. How many were going to Bahia?
1 man + 7 women = 8 people
Each woman with 7 boxes (7x7 = 49 boxes)
Each box with 7 cats (49x7 = 343 cats)
Each cat with 7 kittens (343x7 = 2401 kittens)
So 8 + 343 + 2401 = 2752 (remembering that the 49 boxes are not living beings and therefore are not summed).
