What are the next three numbers in this sequence?
6, 28, 496, 8128, ... ?
Please explain how you determined these three numbers.
(In reply to re: Explain...
Why did you choose not to explain, in response to a post which asked for an explanation? Why, when a simple answer is wanted, do you point to a whole history of perfect numbers? The simple answer does fit within a comment. This is a puzzle site, not a mathematics seminar.
