# What is a perfect number?

A perfect number is one whose positive integer factors, other than itself, add up to the number itself. For example, the factors of 6, other than itself, are 1, 2, 3, and 1 + …2 + 3 = 6. Therefore, 6 is a perfect number. The first eight perfect numbers are:62849681283355033685898690561374386913282305843008139952128

# What are the perfect numbers?

A number is considered perfect if it is equal to the sum of all its positive factors/divisors, excluding itself. These are the first few perfect numbers: * 6 * 28 … * 496 * 8128 * 33550336 * 8589869056 A perfect number is a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its positive divisors, excluding the number itself. An example 1+2+3=6 and 1x2x3=6

# What numbers are perfect?

6, 28, 496 and 8128 are the first four Perfect numbers.

# What are the nine factors of the number 496?

The factors of 496 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 31, 62, 124, 248, and 496.

# What is the perfect number?

It is a A number n for which the sum of all the positive integer factors of n which are less than n add up to n. For example, 6 and 28 are perfect numbers. The number …6 has factors 1, 2, and 3, and 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. The number 28 has factors 1, 2, 4, 7, and 14, and 1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28 It is a A number n for which the sum of all the positive integer factors of n which are less than n add up to n. For example, 6 and 28 are perfect numbers. The number 6 has factors 1, 2, and 3, and 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. The number 28 has factors 1, 2, 4, 7, and 14, and 1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28

# What is 496?

A number. Other examples: 13, 4, 12657.

# Why is 496 a perfect number?

Divisors of 496 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 31, 62, 124 and 248 and the sum of all these divisors is 496 (1+2+4+8+16+31+62+124+248=496) so 496 is a perfect number. The first per…fect number is 6, because 1, 2, and 3 are its proper positive divisors, and 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. Equivalently, the number 6 is equal to half the sum of all its positive divisors: (1 + 2 + 3 + 6) / 2 = 6.

# What is the perfect number and what is the perfect number after six?

A perfect number is a number, which, when adding all of its proper divisors (all divisors except himself) give the number itself Divisors of 6: 1,2,3 ------>1+2+3=6 The next …proper number is 28 Divisors of 28:1,2,4,7,14 -------> 1+2+4+7+14=28 All perfect numbers found so far are found using this formula: 2^(p-1)*((2^p)-1), where p, and ((2^p)-1) are prime numbers

# How is 496 a perfect number?

The factors of 496 (excluding itself) are: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 31, 62, 124, 248 whose sum is 496. -------------------------------------------- The prime factorization of 496 is… 496 = 24*31. If we take σ(496) (sum of all divisors of 496), this is equal to σ(496) = σ(24)σ(31) (this is a useful property, σ(ab) = σ(a)σ(b) for relatively prime a,b) Since σ(24) = 1+2+4+8+16 = 31 and σ(31) = 1+31 = 32, σ(496) = 31*32 = 2(496), so 496 is perfect.

# Why are perfect numbers perfect?

A perfect number is only classified as a perfect number because all of its proper divisors add up to itself. For example, the proper divisors of six are one, two and three. Th…ose numbers added together equal six. Therefore, six is a perfect number.

# What two prime numbers multiplied together make 496?

496 has two prime factors, but no prime factor pair. 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 31 = 496
