Jimmy's Perfect Number...(JE #2)

________________________________________________________________________________________________
         


Four rows of seven symbols 
could have been
Two rows of fourteen symbols 
or
One row of twenty-eight
*  **  ****  *******  ************** 

It is anybody's goose what the symbols 
mean individually but
the fact is there are 
TWENTY-EIGHT
of them.
*
**
****
*******
************** 
Another fact:
I am the GoFather of Math
and I play with numbers. 
****************************
       1 x 28  =   2 x 14 =   7 x 4 

The PROPER DIVISORS of 28–
from smallest to largest
are the numbers 
1, 2, 4, 7, 14

and
1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28
  *  **  ****  *******  **************

When all the  Proper Divisors  of a number
add up to that number
what you get is called 

The only Perfect numbers 
less than one million are 
6, 28, 496, and 8192

*  **  ****  *******  **************
