# Perfect Number

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 20 Dec, 2022

A number is a perfect number if is equal to sum of its proper divisors, that is, sum of its positive divisors excluding the number itself. Write a function to check if a given number is perfect or not.
Examples:

```Input: n = 15
Output: false
Divisors of 15 are 1, 3 and 5. Sum of
divisors is 9 which is not equal to 15.

Input: n = 6
Output: true
Divisors of 6 are 1, 2 and 3. Sum of
divisors is 6.```

Recommended Practice

A Simple Solution is to go through every number from 1 to n-1 and check if it is a divisor. Maintain sum of all divisors. If sum becomes equal to n, then return true, else return false.
An Efficient Solution is to go through numbers till square root of n. If a number ‘i’ divides n, then add both ‘i’ and n/i to sum.
Below is the implementation of efficient solution.

## C++

 `// C++ program to check if a given number is perfect` `// or not` `#include` `using` `namespace` `std;`   `// Returns true if n is perfect` `bool` `isPerfect(``long` `long` `int` `n)` `{` `    ``// To store sum of divisors` `    ``long` `long` `int` `sum = 1;` ` `  `    ``// Find all divisors and add them` `    ``for` `(``long` `long` `int` `i=2; i*i<=n; i++)` `    ``{` `        ``if` `(n%i==0)` `        ``{` `            ``if``(i*i!=n)` `                ``sum = sum + i + n/i;` `            ``else` `                ``sum=sum+i;` `        ``}` `    ``} ` `     ``// If sum of divisors is equal to` `     ``// n, then n is a perfect number` `     ``if` `(sum == n && n != 1)` `          ``return` `true``;` ` `  `     ``return` `false``;` `}` ` `  `// Driver program` `int` `main()` `{` `    ``cout << ``"Below are all perfect numbers till 10000\n"``;` `    ``for` `(``int` `n =2; n<10000; n++)` `        ``if` `(isPerfect(n))` `            ``cout << n << ``" is a perfect number\n"``;` ` `  `    ``return` `0;` `}`

## Java

 `// Java program to check if a given ` `// number is perfect or not` `import` `java.io.*;` `public` `class` `GFG` `{` `    `  `// Returns true if n is perfect` `static` `boolean` `isPerfect(``int` `n)` `{` `    ``// To store sum of divisors` `    ``int` `sum = ``1``;`   `    ``// Find all divisors and add them` `    ``for` `(``int` `i = ``2``; i * i <= n; i++)` `    ``{` `        ``if` `(n % i==``0``)` `        ``{` `            ``if``(i * i != n)` `                ``sum = sum + i + n / i;` `            ``else` `                ``sum = sum + i;` `        ``}` `    ``} ` `    ``// If sum of divisors is equal to` `    ``// n, then n is a perfect number` `    ``if` `(sum == n && n != ``1``)` `        ``return` `true``;`   `    ``return` `false``;` `}`   `// Driver program` `public` `static` `void` `main (String[] args)` `{` `    ``System.out.println(``"Below are all perfect"` `+ ` `                                ``"numbers till 10000"``);` `    ``for` `(``int` `n = ``2``; n < ``10000``; n++)` `        ``if` `(isPerfect(n))` `            ``System.out.println( n + ` `                    ``" is a perfect number"``);` `}` `}`   `// This code is contributed by mits`

Time Complexity: O(âˆšn)
Auxiliary Space: O(1), since no extra space has been taken.
Below are some interesting facts about Perfect Numbers:
1) Every even perfect number is of the form 2p?1(2p ? 1) where 2p ? 1 is prime.
2) It is unknown whether there are any odd perfect numbers.
