Can you answer this 5th Grade Math Problem and win the prize??

Our ladies group was recently given this challenge. I was the only one who came up with the answer. It was a real challenge for me and a great surprise to be the winner. Math is really my weak area!
Are you smarter than a 5th grader? There are no tricks or riddles so dont try counting the bus driver or anything. There are 7 girls on a bus. Each girl has 7 backpacks. Each packback has 7 big cats. For every big cat there are 7 kittens.
How many legs are there?

There will be a prize for the first one to email the correct answer to (If you've already done this one it doesn't count!) You must also send me your snail mail address if you want the prize. I will let you know when a winner has been found.

7 girls 7 backpaks 7 cats 7 small cats = 7x7x7x7x4=9604

7 girls 7 backpaks 7 cats 7x7x7x4=1372

7 girls on a bus = 7x2=14

TOTAL:9604+1372+14 = 10990

“the answer is 10990”
