COMMENTS
To be considered as common, a value must have appeared for some N in both sequences sigma(n)/n (A017665/A017666) and n/eulerphi(n) (A109395/A076512), with 1<=n<=N.

EXAMPLE
sigma(n)/n starts: 1/1, 3/2, 4/3, 7/4, 6/5, 2/1, 8/7, 15/8, 13/9, 9/5, ...
m/phi(m) starts: 1/1, 2/1, 3/2, 2/1, 5/4, 3/1, 7/6, 2/1, 3/2, 5/2, ...
The 1st common value is 1/1 = sigma(1)/1 = 1/eulerphi(1).
The 2nd common value is 3/2 = 3/eulerphi(3) = sigma(2)/2.
The 3rd common value is 2/1 = sigma(6)/6 = 2/eulerphi(2).
The sequence of ratios begin: 1, 3/2, 2, 7/3, 15/8, 7/4, 5/2, 13/6, 3, 65/24, 91/36, 31/10, 255/128, 31/12, ...
So this sequence begins 1, 2, 1, ...
