your answer has nothing to do towards what i'm asking

fulij please use the Post a New Question choice at the top of the page

28 is a perfect number because its proper divisors are 1, 2, 4, 7, and 14.
So 1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28.

Oh, and for a number to be a perfect number, it's proper divisors must add up to the original number. Just like I showed you about with 28. Another example is the number six. It's proper divisors are 1, 2, and 3. So 1 + 2 + 3 = 6.

Thank you I will study of from what you explained to me.
