are no humans in the room?

### Answer

1,512.Here's how:

6 rugs, each with 6 tables on them, so there are 36 tables.

Each table has 6 legs, or 216 legs total (36 X 6).

Each table has 6 creatures on it, so there are 216 creatures (36 X 6).

Each creature has 6 legs, so there are 1,296 creature legs (216 X 6).

216 table legs + 1,296 creature legs = 1,512 total legs.

im so confused!

desperate for points, eh?

I've never really thought of math problems as teasers. All it takes is math knowledge, not logic, to figure it out. Still, pretty good math problem here.

that suxed, i already heard it in 1st grade, mite i add that that wuz 7 years ago?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I'm sorry, but I beg to differ. If Mad-Ade was in the room, his 2 legs would count. Being that he isn't a human.

Jus' kidding! Or am I?

Well it got me. With so many 6's in the puzzle, I missed that there were 6 tables on each rug and was off because of it. I thought it was a good one.

feh.
