no of farmers = 8
no of farms each farmer had = 8 therefore, total no of farms =8×8=64
no of dogs each farm had = 8 therefore, total no of dogs =64×8=512
no of puppies each dog had = 8 therefore, total no of puppies =512×8=4096
no of fleas each puppy had = 8 therefore, total no of fleas =4096×8=32,768
total no of legs of 512 dogs =512×4=2048 total no of legs of 4096 puppies =4096×4=16384 total no of legs of 32768 fleas =32768×6=131072
Hence, total number of legs present =2048+16384+131072=149,504 legs

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!
