    Snails do not have legs, but instead have one very large and very flat foot. Snails secrete a layer of mucus that they use to help them glide about.
    The snails' foot is not really a foot in the conventional sense, but instead is a muscular organ that is spread out beneath the body of the snail. The snail makes a rippling motion with the muscle, and as it moves, it secretes a bit of mucus that coats the ground beneath it and helps move it along. The snail leaves a small trail of slimy mucus behind wherever it goes, although this is only true of most snails, not all.

    Question


    0 Not allowed!
    Mathematician Ramanujam didnít have any close friends- someone asked him the reason. He replied that although

    he wanted to have close friends -nobody was up to his expectations. When pressed how he expected his friend to be

    - he replied - like numbers 220 and 284!

    The person got confused and asked what is the connection between friendship and these numbers!

    Can anyone find out .... without searching the WEB?

    Math genius Ramanujam's explanation of the numbers 220 and 284:

    ''.........
    The person got confused and asked what is the connection between friendship and these numbers!

    Ramanujam asked him to find the divisors of each number!

    With much difficulty - the person derived and listed them

    220 → 1,2,4,5,10,11,20,22,44,55,110,220

    284 →1,2,4,71,142,284

    Ramanujam then asked the person to exclude the numbers 220 and 284 and asked the sum of the remaining divisors

    The person was astonished to find:

    220 → 1+2+4+5+10+11+20+22+44+55+110 = 284

    284 →1+2+4+71+142 = 220

    Ramanujam explained that an ideal friendship should be like these numbers- to complement each other - even when

    one is absent - the other should represent the friend!

    The person thought - no wonder this genius is on the worldís top list of mathematicians!!''
