Perfect numbers 2000-10-31
From A student:
I was wondering if you could help me answer a question my pre-algebra teacher asked in class the other day. He asked if we knew what the perfect numbers where.

He told us the first number is 6 the second number is 28 but the third he did not tell us. Do you know what the third perfect number is?
