 sahana Mar 20, 2006 It was fun solving this problem..it was very easy though signmeup74 Mar 24, 2006 *smacking myself in the head* Spiders have 8 legs. Ants have 6. DUH! Good job messing me up! sheabm Mar 25, 2006 "exactly 10 times more" means a total of 11 times as many. Either the problem or the solution is incorrect.
