# What is the connection between Marriage and Mathematics? Let us discuss.

There is a mathematical sum going viral as to 'why a Hindu wedding has the ritual of 'Saat Phere' (seven rounds) around the sacred fire?The answer to this coming from a maths teacher goes that as a circle has 360 degrees and this number can be divided by all the numbers 1 to 9 except 7 and hence if they go around 7 seven times nothing is divided in their relationship.

This is what is going viral via WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram etc. There is some more extension in this mathematics which says, people may say that 360 is not divisible by even 11 and 13, then why only 7. The answer to this is that if one's marriage relationship can be confirmed as indivisible by 7 rounds itself, why should they then go for more rounds. Also, there is another fact that 360 divided by 7 give 51 as quotient and 3 as the reminder which may be significantly said to mean that they will be living together for 51 years with a family of 3 meaning at least one kid will be there.

This has significance with homophones of phere and fire too.

So this thread is only to give significance to maths (or homophones like phere and fire) and hence responses may be related to that only, please.
