5+5=10 so add on 7 and it would = 17 but add on the man it would = 18

Or if if you ment people.... It would just be 5 but add on the man = 6

1 narrator = 1 person

1 man = 1 person

This  is where it gets hard.

 Wife Wife Wife Wife Wife 7 Cats 7 Cats 7 Cats 7 Cats 7 Cats 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens

There are 5 wives. Each wife has 7 cats.

7 • 5 = 35

 Cat Cat Cat Cat Cat Cat Cat 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens 5 Kittens

There are 7 cats. Each cat has 5 kittens.

7 • 5 = 35

Since there are 5 wives, we must multiply 35 by 5.

35 • 5 = 175

Now we must add the narrator, the man, the wives, the cats, and the kittens together.

1 + 1 + 5 + 35 + 175

2 + 5 + 35 + 175

7 + 35 + 175

42 + 175

217

217 people are going to St. George.
