 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Numbers corresponding to the a(n) for n>11 are probable prime. If Q is a 4-perfect number and gcd(Q, 5*(5^a(n)-6))=1 then m=5^(a(n)-1) (5^a(n)-6)*Q is a solution of the equation sigma(x)=5(x+Q)(see comment lines of the sequence A058959). 142990848 is the smallest 4-perfect number m such that 5 doesn't divide m. a(27) > 10^5. - Robert Price, Feb 03 2014 LINKS F.
