Expert Answer:

According to Gulliver, the Lilliputians excelled in the field of Mathematics. They are masters in making machines which carries heavy weights and huge trees. So, for carrying Gulliver to the metropolis, they dispatched 500 carpenter and engineers to work to prepare the biggest machine. However, what marveled Gulliver was that they took only 4 hours to make a such a huge kind of engine.  
Also, when the emperor came to know that Gulliver had difficulty sleeping on the ground, he passes an order to prepare exactly 600 beds; 4 doubles of 150 beds sown together. Going by the same figures, sheets, blankets and coverlets were provided to him. They even had an exact number on tailors required to stitch cloths for Gulliver. They were precise and accurate with almost everything.
