7 sisters X 7 backpacks X 7 large cats X 7 small cats=2,401 all cats

2,401 X 4 =9,604 all cat's legs

7 sisters X 2 =14 legs for all sisters

9,604 + 14 =9,618 total legs of cats and humans.

We don't know how large the table is, and therfore the number of "legs", which will not include in this calculation.

you find how many legs by doing the math, you take the 7 people with 2 legs each, and take all 56 cats with 4 legs each then add the 4 legs of the table. you do the rest.
