While I was on my way to St. Ives I met a man with seven wives. Each wife had seven sacks. Each sack had seven cats. Each cat had seven kittens. Wives sacks, cats, and kittens, how many were there on there way to St. Ives?
One. The riddle asks how many where on their way to St. Ives, not how many people or things where on the road.
