# Puzzle | Legs

You are standing in one of the biggest palaces in the world “Hofburg Palace, Vienna”. In palace, five commando are staying. Each commando has been allotted five big rooms and each room contains five huge tigers. Each huge tiger has five small tigers.

How many legs are there in the Palace ?

**Solution :** 3012

**Explanation :** We all know a tiger has 4 legs.

** Step – 1 :**

Five commando allotted five rooms each, number of rooms = 5 * 5 = 25

Each room has five huge tigers, number of huge tigers = 25 * 5 = 125

Each huge tiger has five small tigers, number of small tigers = 125 * 5 = 625

Total tigers = 125 + 625 = 750

Number of legs of tigers = 750 * 4 = 3000

** Step – 2 :**

There are five soldiers.

Number of legs of soldiers = 5 * 2 = 10

** Step – 3 :**

Your leg = 2

Total legs = 3000 + 10 + 2 = 3012
