Way, way too many!!! Now the superabundant number is one which has, over and above the factors which belong to it and fall to its share, others in addition, just as if an animal should be created with too many parts or limbs, with 10 tongues as the poet says, and 10 mouths, or with 9 lips, or 3 rows of teeth, or 100 hands, or too many fingers on one hand. Similarly, if when all the factors in a number are examined and added together in one sum, it proves upon investigation that the number's own factors exceed the number itself, this is called a superabundant number, for it oversteps the symmetry which exists between the perfect and its own parts.

Playmate, are you addressing any 50 people in particular (assuming that none of us are amputees, of course)?

I have no idea what I am assuming. I was asked this question and have no idea what the correct answer is.

Maybe this is speaking to "hands" as in "hired hands," thus, making the answer 1,000?

I haven't got five fingers on my hands. I've got four on each, with a thumb on each hand as well....

I think you should probably try this on the Brain Teasers chat board. It isn't working here.
