"All right now, Alfred, pay attention! I'll repeat the puzzle one more time.
'As I was going to St.Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits;
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?'
It's really not very hard if you give it a little thought."
Character is who you are when no one is looking.
and only "I" was going to St. Ives, so....ONE
The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.
No kits, cats, sacks nor any wives were going to St. Ives.
Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
