no of farmers = 8

no of farms each farmer had = 8 therefore, total no of farms

no of dogs each farm had = 8 therefore, total no of dogs

no of puppies each dog had = 8 therefore, total no of puppies

no of fleas each puppy had = 8 therefore, total no of fleas

total no of legs of 512 dogs

Hence, total number of legs present

Farmers: 8
Each farmer had 8 farms: 8x8=64 farms
Each farm had 8 dogs: 64x8=512 dogs
Each dog had 8 puppies: 512x8=4096 puppies
Each puppy had 8 fleas: 4096x8=32,768 fleas
8 farmers x 2 legs each = 16 legs
512 dogs x 4 legs each = 2048 legs
4096 puppies x 4 legs each= 16,384 legs
32,768 fleas x 6 legs each = 196,608 legs
16+2048+16,384+196,608= 215, 056 legs
There are a total of 215,056 legs!
