BosGuy brain teaser

brain teaserEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain.  If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.  I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

This week’s riddle:   While on my way to Newport I saw a man with 7 children.  Each child had 7 sacks. Each sack had 7 cats. Each cat had 7 kittens. Kitten, cats, sacks, children, How many were going to Newport.
