14.I think it is 14 because octuposes have 8 arms but the octuposes are hanging on to each oters hand so 8 minus 1 is 7.7+7=14

Since they have 8 arms, and there are 2 of them, 8+8=16. So 16-2=14. So 14 people can shake there hands.

I knew that an octopus has 8 legs. And if there holding hands that is taking up 1 arm each so we are only working with 7 arms. if each person is holding an arm than there are 14 people because 7+7=14. My Answer: 14

i think its 14 because octupuses have 8 arms and 8+8=16 and because the octupuses are holding one hand and they both have 7 extra hands and 7+7=14

if there is 8 tenticals there will be 16 with both and if they are holding hands you have to subtract 2 16-2 =14

I think the answer is 14 because 8+8=16 and if 2 octopuses hold hands you would -2 from the 16 would be 16-2=14.Then the answer would be 14.

I think it is 14 people because 7 plus 7 equals 14!!!

i think its 14 because octopuses have 8 arms and 1 on each octopuses have to connect so there would 7 left on each octopuses and 7*2=14
