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.
