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.
