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)

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

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.
