It is not easy riddle. There are lots of 7 number. Ask us to count all children. Let’s look step by step. Firstly, I want to say this riddle have two answer.

 

  • 7 men and 7 wives = 7 + 7 = 14 people.
  • Each man and wife have 7 children = Only 7 children.
  • So, 14 people + 7 children.
  • Answer is 21 people.

 

Let’s look the other answer.

  • Each man and wife 7 children = 7 * 7 = 49 children
  • 7 men and 7 wives = 14 people.
  • If we sum of all tha answer is 49 + 14 = 63 people.

  1. The problem is changing the riddle from “Each man and EACH wife have 7 children” to “Each men and wife…”.

    1. it doesnt state they had the kids together so 1 of the 7 mens 7 wives may have had 7 kids already as may the guys to guys and girls they never married so when you plot this riddle out as it reads you end up with 448
