1. 7men + 7wives yields 14. Each man from the 7men has 7children which will yield 49children from 7men, same also to each wife from the 7wives having 49children also. Total children from the 7men and 7wives yields 98children. Total people will be 14 men and wives + 98 children = 112 people.

3. 399

7(7x7+7+1)

4. 7 men have 7 wives:
That is 7 + 7 = 14

Each wife have 7 children:
That is 7 x 7 = 49

Add the children to the men and wives:
That is 49 + 14 = 63

The total number of people is 63.

5. 7 Men * 7 Wives * 7 Child = 343 people

Men * 7 Wives = 49 people

7 Men = 7 people

343 + 49 + 7 = 399 People

6. 7 men with seven wife each and  seven children...
For each man is 7x7+7+1
And the total people is 399
7(7×7+7×1)

7. If you observe the second sentence which states "each man and each wive have 7 children". That is each man and woman are couple, that is a number of 7 couples have 1 child each, this makes them 7men + 7women + 7children which is 21.

Therefore, The total number of people is 21.

8. Let's consider for 1 man :
1 man has 7 wives and each have 7 children, so total family member of 1 man will be,
1 man
1 wife has 7 children, so total 8 ( wife + her children) and like wise he has 7 wives
Therefore,
(8 × 7) + 1 = 57
So,
For 7 men, it will be :
57 × 7 = 399
Hence,
Total number of people are 399
