DQ 21 Answer:
In this case where the narrator asks “kits, cats, sacs, wives how many going to st ives” ? There are two interpretable answers, 2802 is the total number of people, felines and sacks….
The mathematical answer to the total number of people, sacks, and felines involved is 2,802, calculated as follows:
The man whom he met: 1
We're up to 9. Now we must consider how many entities accompany just one wife:
Adult cats: 49 (7 cats per sack, of which there are 7)
Kittens: 343 (7 kittens per cat, of which there are 49)
Total number of entities per wife: 399 (7 + 49 + 343)
There are 7 wives, so we multiply 399 by 7, which equals 2,793. Now we add the narrator, the man, and the man's wives (2,793 + 9), and the grand total is 2,802.
Alternatively there is the second answer where the Narrator states that “As I was traveling to st. ives….” Indicating that he was the one on his way and just met the others who were not said to be on their way to st. ives as well…. In this case there is only 1 traveling…..
