Crazy taylor

Оne-legged friend of one Taylor asked him to sew the special one leg pants.

He payed well for the custom pants, but he needed also the pants for his dog, who, as himself, had lost one leg long time ago. Taylor sewed the pants for that 3-leg dog. The pants were beautiful, and friend of friend asked him the same for his normal, 4-leg dog..

The story is long, the starfishеs and octopuses are mentioned there. En fin, the Taylor had elaborated tools to sew pantaloons for creatures with arbitrary number \(n\) of legs. And if tomorrow some extraterrestrials with \(n\) legs come, the Taylor already has pantaloons for them.
