Riddle - Man, women and cats


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?

Answer

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).
