    2 dudes, 7 wives, 343 cats, 2401 kittens ( leaving the sacks out of it)

    2+ 7^1 + 7^3 +7^4 = 2753

    the riddle is usually read:

    "one day, walking to st. ives
    i met a man with seven wives..."

    and so it's usually thought to be just one person, implying the author is the only one going to st. ives but not the man he meets, nor his wives, cats and kittens. however, the OP's version of the riddle could verily mean just the man he MEETS is going to st. ives (1), or everyone is going in which case joe schmo has the right answer, imo.

    If they each took the same apple...

    I don't like it when the wording of a puzzle like this is purposefully misleading, but it may be the answer they're looking for.

    I've heard it with Knights instead of children and was told the answer was that Eich is the name of the Knight, or in this case the name of the student.

    Its possible that the apple pickers climbed the tree, helped themselves to an apple and didn't come down.
    Therefore the apples are still in the tree.

    Unfortunately, if you're using the MLB as a standard and are only counting starters, half the teams have 20 legs. If you are taking the team as a whole and not just starters then every legit baseball team has at least 50 legs. If you want a game where the starters equal 9 you can try seven man football (7 plus the kicker and the punter equal 9)or even better Nextel cup racing crews have an average of 8 crewman and 1 driver. I think there may also be canoe races with 9 man crews.that's just sports. The problem is that there is probably even more solutions outside the realm of sports and measles.

    As far as you knew it, only one was going to saint Ives. How many were there more than the one you knew? You don't know.

    So the correct answer should be: At least one.
