At the local Sunday School meeting, the teacher brought in some puppies. There were 20 more children than puppies. In the corner of the room, within the ant's nest, there were exactly 10 times as many ants as children. In total, including the teacher, the children, the puppies and the ants, there were 1440 legs in the room. How many children attended?

"exactly 10 times more" means a total of 11 times as many. Either the problem or the solution is incorrect. Good teaser, otherwise.
