Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A087167 Odd numbers such that sigma(n) - 2n = 6. 12
8925, 32445, 442365 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



If m is in this sequence and 5 doesn't divide m then m is an odd Weird number. There are no other terms up to 2*10^9. Jud McCranie wrote: There are no terms between 2*10^9 and 6.5*10^9.

a(4) > 10^12. - Donovan Johnson, Dec 08 2011

a(4) > 10^13. - Giovanni Resta, Mar 29 2013

a(4) > 10^22. - Wenjie Fang, Jun 16 2014

Any term x of this sequence can be combined with any term y of A141548 to satisfy the property (sigma(x)+sigma(y))/(x+y) = 2, which is a necessary (but not sufficient) condition for two numbers to be amicable. - Timothy L. Tiffin, Sep 13 2016

a(1)=8925 because sigma(8925)=2*8925+6 and 8925 is the first odd number such that sigma(n)-2n=6.
