As I was traveling to St. Ives,

I met a man with seven wives.

Each wife of his had seven cats,

And each day they caught seven rats.

How many were traveling to St. Ives?

    Either one or two, I think, depending on whether or not the aforementioned man was traveling to or from St. Ives. @_@

  • Eric Michaels

    Only one for sure “I was traveling to St. Ives” he could have met them at any point along his trip there. It’s a classic case of too little information.

  • Glenda Moses

    Only the person who met the man was traveling to St Ives because he said I was traveling to St. Ives he didn’t say anyone else was.

    This is an “Oldie but a Goodie,” hence the title of the riddle.

    The correct answer is one. Only the speaker is traveling to St. Ives. All the rest he met on the way.

    Based on the answers above, Eric Michaels you are today’s winner.
