The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

%N Six consecutive integers with decreasing values of sigma start at these numbers: sigma(x) > sigma(x+1) > sigma(x+2) > sigma(x+3) > sigma(x+4) > sigma(x+5).

%C There are many examples of 4 consecutive numbers having decreasing values of sigma (see cross references) and there are 83 cases of 6 consecutive numbers with decreasing values of sigma < 4,293,000,000. Interestingly (and for unknown reasons) there are no examples of exactly 5 such consecutive numbers in that range! All known members of the sequence are multiples of 6 and one less than a multiple of 35.
