Equivalently, the number 6 is equal to half the sum of all its positive divisors: ( 1 + 2 + 3 + 6 ) / 2 = 6. The next perfect number is 10 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4. This is followed by the perfect numbers
(1+2+3+4+10)/2
20 / 2 = 10

2. my son is having trouble with a question i'v never heard of heres the question: A perfect number is a number
that equals the sum of its factors, not including
itself. For example, the factors of 28 are 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, and 28.
Because 1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28, 28 is a perfect number.
What are the perfect numbers between 1 and 28?
