All aspects of textbook publishing are handled by a very small team of multi-skilled and experienced professionals. The textbook design, cover design, illustrations, photography, typesetting, and production etc are handled inhouse by this very small team.

The costs of publishing are thus significantly reduced, allowing the price of the textbooks to be less than half of what would normally be expected.

**1** A perfect number is a positive integer for which the sum of all factors except itself is equal to itself. For example, 6 is a perfect number because 1+2+3=6. The next perfect number is 28 because 1+2+4+7+14=28.

Find the next perfect number.

**2** How can you tell if a barrel is more than half-filled, exactly half-filled, less than half-filled?
