Traveling Toes

A school bus travels from Veldhoven to Roosendaal. There are 4 children in the bus. And each child has 4 backpacks with him. There are 4 dogs sitting in each backpack. And every dog has 4 puppies with her. All these dogs have 4 legs, with 4 toes at each leg.

The Question: What is the total number of toes in the bus?

Answer: The total number of toes is 5170.

The puppies: 4 children × 4 backpacks × 4 dogs × 4 puppies × 4 legs × 4 toes = 4096
Plus the dogs: 4 children × 4 backpacks × 4 dogs × 4 legs × 4 toes = 1024
Plus the children: 4 children × 2 legs × 5 toes = 40
Plus the driver of the school bus: 2 legs × 5 toes = 10

Which results in a total number of toes: 5170
