There is a forest with trees. On each and every tree in the forest, exactly the same number of birds are sitting on it (ex. "There are 5 trees and each tree has 5 birds on it"). The birds in the forest is a given number between 200 and 300.
How many trees are in our forest(such that there is no other combination of trees and birds to acquire the same product)?

Ahaan is stranded on an island covered in forest.

One day, when the wind is blowing from the west, lightning strikes the west end of the island and sets fire to the forest. The fire is very violent, burning everything in its path, and without intervention the fire will burn the whole island, killing the man in the process.

There are cliffs around the island, so he cannot jump off.

How can the Ahaan survive the fire? (There are no buckets or any other means to put out the fire)
