More information: Russell collaborated very little and no Erdös number can be found using research articles. But, as pointed out by Sachi Sri Kantha at "the Erdös number project" Russell and Albert Einstein did coauthor the Russell-Einstein "Peace" Manifesto of 1955.
Answer: Paul Erdős, of course!
More information: As the Erdős number describes the "collaborative distance" in authorship of mathematical papers between mathematician Paul Erdős and another person it is only natural that Paul Erdős holds this position.
Answer: Paul Erdős
More information: Erdős published at least 1,525 mathematical papers during his lifetime. He engaged more than 500 collaborators and devoted most of his time to mathematics up until his death in 1996 at the age of 83 years old.
Answer: 180 degrees
More information: The angles of a triangle always sum to 180 degrees.
Answer: Pierre-Simon Laplace has an Erdős number of at most 14!
More information: According to "The Erdös number project" a path to Laplace was found by Leonid Yanushevich giving the famous mathematician an Erdös number of at most 14.
Answer: Yes, it is!
More information: Adding up the divisors of 8128: 1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + 32 + 64 + 127 + 254 + 508 + 1016 + 2032 + 4064 = 8128
Answer: No, it's not!
More information: Adding up the divisors of 36: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 9 + 12 + 18 = 55
Answer: A perfect number.
More information: You might also think of a perfect number as a number that is half the sum of all of its positive divisors, including itself! This definition is at least 2300 years old as it appears in Euclid's "Elements".
