[FONT=q_serif]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.[/FONT]
[FONT=q_serif]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.[/FONT]

Mathematician Ramanujam didn’t 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 world’s top list of mathematicians!!''
