Bull_&_Sheep - edited

When Balaam came to curse the Jews he build seven alters and sacrificed a bull and a lamb on each altar. Later, when Balaam’s location was moved he built another seven altars and a sacrificed a bull and a lamb on each altar. Balaam moved to a third location and built another seven altars and sacrificed the same number of bulls and lambs as he did each time before. What is the total number of animals Balaam sacrificed? (Bamidbar 23:1)

 

7 (alters) x 2 (animals) x 3 (locations) = 42

(266)
