## What did Einstein say about Ramanujan?

In the words of Albert Einstein, “Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” The credit for all the development in 20th century mathematics is given to the final writings, theories and developments of mathematics’ genius, Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar, who was born on December 22, 1887.

**Why is 1729 no special?**

1729, the Hardy-Ramanujan Number, is the smallest number which can be expressed as the sum of two different cubes in two different ways. 1729 is the sum of the cubes of 10 and 9 – cube of 10 is 1000 and cube of 9 is 729; adding the two numbers results in 1729.

**What did Ramanujan say?**

When he got there, he told Ramanujan that the cab’s number, 1729, was “rather a dull one.” Ramanujan said, “No, it is a very interesting number. It is the smallest number expressible as a sum of two cubes in two different ways. That is, 1729 = 1^3 + 12^3 = 9^3 + 10^3.

### Why did Ramanujan say 220 and 284?

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!

**Why is Ramanujan so intelligent?**

He gained intuition by looking at every problem from it’s most simple level and developing it in his head. After he did that, he knew the inside and out of every formula, so he had the building blocks for new formulas in his back pocket and the intuition to put it together.

**Is 6 an amicable number?**

Fermat and Descartes also rediscovered pairs of amicable numbers known to Arab mathematicians. Euler also discovered dozens of new pairs. The second smallest pair, (1184, 1210), was discovered in 1867 by 16-year-old B….History.

#### Why Ramanujan said The Man Who Knew Infinity?

Who knew an unlucky number for Hardy would be the rub of green Ramanujan needed. The man who knew infinity was called so because his love for mathematics had no boundaries. He gave the whole mathematics fraternity a new dimension and left behind useful conclusions which are being used as a base for new findings.
