Here's another programming question I've asked in interviews to CS/IT Toppers in interviews when they tell me they are interested in Maths & Programming :

Write a program to display all perfect numbers between 1 - 100
Computer Language Choice: Whatever, doesn't matter. I'm happy even if you can come up with an algorithm.
PS: If you are interested in mathematics and don't know what Perfect Numbers are, you don't impress me.
@c.deepak257 • 09 Oct, 2008 2^(n-1)(2^n -1)
this means (2 raise to the power of (n-1)) into (2 raise to the power n)-1

this is the euclid equation for calculating the perfect numbers. The first value of the n is 2 because n-1 should be greater than 1 and n is a prime number i.e. 2,3,5,7 and so on.
use this formula to calculate the perfect numbers between 1 and any number.try yourself. This is the hint.

(P.S.= ASSUMED THAT U KNOW WHAT IS PERFECT NUMBER)
@Kaustubh Katdare • 09 Oct, 2008 I'd not ask if I didn't know.
@c.deepak257 • 09 Oct, 2008 perfect number are those in which the whose divisors proper sum is equal to the number.for eg: 6 has 1,2,3 as the proper divisors.sum of 1,2, and 3 is 6.
@sriramchandrk • 14 Oct, 2008 Hi,

This program finds all perfect numbers within 1 to 100

I have hardoded n = 100!
The inner for loop finds all factors for a number

This is simple way any one would do, but if you think of speed, then you should use euclids formula.

Thanks & Regards
Sriram

```#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
main()
{
int n = 100,sum = 0;
cout << "Searching for perfect number less than 100..." << endl;
for(int num = 1; num <= n; num++)
{
sum = 0;
for(int i = 1; i < num; i++)
{
if(!(num%i))
{
sum+=i;
}
}
if(sum == num)
cout <<  num << " Is perfect number" << endl;
}
}
```
Test run
>./a.out
Searching for perfect number less than 100...
6 Is perfect number
28 Is perfect number
@OrAnGeWorX • 17 Nov, 2008 it's funny i was asked this same question a week ago in C and it's been kinda haunting me... the truth of the matter is that i don't understand the maths behind it... i was never math savvy so when it gets to things like these i get confused really easy and my code ... let's not go there.. for now at least
though the question had a different twist, user would enter a number, that creates a table with n amount of rows to be filled by the user with his choice numbers to be tested as perfect numbers, y/n, and the non-perfect numbers need to be multiplied together.

i believe there's another way to do it with modulo (the perfect number calculation itself) but i'm sorta stuck...

here it is
```// loop to fill table with numbers to be checked.
for (i = 0; i < nbrMax; i++)
{
scanf ("%d", &tableNbr[i]);
}

// calculations to find perfect numbers
sum = 0;
for (j = 0; j < nbrMax; j++)
{
for (k = 1; k < tableau[j]; k++)
{
if(tableau[j]%k==0)
{
sum += k;
}
}
}

```
@Ashutosh_shukla • 17 Nov, 2008 Hi OrAnGeWorX what I could make out of your question is that user enters N numbers and you want the perfect numbers. You also want the product of non perfect numbers.I have tried something I hope you will go through it and reply me.
The code is :

```#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>
#define MAXSIZE 100
void main()
{
int a[MAXSIZE],n,i,j,sum;
long int prod=1;
clrscr();
cout<<"Enter the number of elements to be checked : ";
cin>>n;
cout<<"Enter the elements : ";
for(i=0;i<n;i++)
cin>>a[i];
cout<<"The perfect nos are : \n";
for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{
sum=0;
for(j=1;j<a[i];j++)
if(a[i]%j==0)
sum+=j;
if(sum==a[i])
cout<<a[i]<<endl;
else
prod*=a[i];
}
cout<<"The product of non perfect numbers is : "<<prod;
getch();
}

```
@Raviteja.g • 17 Nov, 2008 what about powerful number?
can you design the program which generates powerful number less than 100

Ashutosh_shukla, thanks for replying.. i should rephrase myself as far as the problem and coding this in C shouldn't be problematic (i guess)

The user enters N for number of integers he'd like to check if or not they are perfect.
stage 1: how many numbers do u want to check?
user enters up to 10 and hits enter
stage 2: program now waits for user to input his n numbers that will be saved in a table.
stage 3: program goes through table to table[n-1] and calculates if integer in each position is perfect or not, display a message accordingly, table[n] = integer is / is not a perfect number and in that same loop calculate the product (multiplication) of the non perfect numbers
finally to display that last number.

Marc
i'll try convertin this to C and see if that works.... having some problems with dev-c++, compiling is fine but when i execute, program is crashing with windows send report window..
@Ashutosh_shukla • 17 Nov, 2008 Re: Write a program to display all perfect numbers upto 1000

Hi I have got the definition of powerful no from wikipedia as follows:
A powerful number is a positive integer m that for every prime number p dividing m, p^2 also divides m. Equivalently, a powerful number is the product of a square and a cube, that is, a number m of the form m = a^2 * b^3, where a and b are positive integers.

The code that gives powerful nos less than 1000 is :
```#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>
int check_prime(int n)
{
for(int j=2;j<n;j++)
{
if(n%j==0)
{
return 0;
}
}
return 1;
}
void main()
{
int i,j;
cout<<"the powerful nos upto 100 are : \n";
for(i=1;i<=1000;i++)
{
for(j=2;j<=i;j++)
if(check_prime(j))
{
if((i%j==0 && i%(j*j)!=0)||(i%j!=0 && i%(j*j)==0))
break;
}
if(j>i)
cout<<i<<"\t";
}
getch();
}```
@Kaustubh Katdare • 17 Nov, 2008 Everyone - please enclose the code in
` ... [ /code ] tags`
@OrAnGeWorX • 17 Nov, 2008 ok here's what i got so far but i have an error problem... line 41

```#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

main()
{
// initialisation des variables
int nbrMax=0;                        // Nbr d'entiers à saisir
int produit=0;
int tableauNbr[nbrMax];            // Tableau pour contenir les nombres entrés par l'usager
int i, j, k;                       // Compteur boucle
int somme;                   // variables pour calcul nbr parfait
char condition;                    // Oui ou Non

// Boucle do ... while, pour ne pas devoir repartir le programme pour chaque calcul
do
{
printf ("Entrez le nombre d'entier (Max 10):\n");
scanf ("%d", &nbrMax);

// boucle pour la saisie des nombres et remplissage le tableau.
for (i = 0; i < nbrMax; i++)
{
scanf ("%d", &tableauNbr[i]);
}

// Calculs pour trouver les nombres parfaits
somme = 0;
// after edit
produit = tableauNbr;   // for multiplication by 0 later.

for (j = 0; j < nbrMax; j++)            {

for (k = 1; k < tableauNbr[j]; k++)
{
if(!tableauNbr[j]%k)
somme += k;
}
// Affichage des resultats
if (somme == tableauNbr[j])
printf("%d est un nombre parfait\n", tableauNbr[j]);
else {
printf("%d n'est pas un nombre parfait\n", tableauNbr[j]);
produit *= tableauNbr[j];        // tableauNbr undeclared, first use in this function error...
}
}

printf("le produit des nombres non-parfaits est: %d", produit);

// Condition requise pour repartir du début
printf ("\nVoulez vous faire un autre calcul, (o/n)?");
fflush (stdin);                        // Fonction pour vider stdin
condition = toupper(getchar());        // Capitaliser la letter et soumettre à condition
}
while ( condition == 'O');                // Repartir du début si O
}
```
edit: error on line 41 corrected... typo (silly me)
but as the code ran, it's still not doing it's job
i also added a line to initialize the product to the first element of the table so that the multiplication in the for loop works (0*9 = 0)
@OrAnGeWorX • 17 Nov, 2008 ok i've cleaned it up a little and fixed the calculations, the results are still wrong...
there's gotta be something with the calculations section....

here are some results

Entrez le nombre d'entier (Max 10):
5
12
6
28
1
6
12 n'est pas un nombre parfait
6 n'est pas un nombre parfait
28 n'est pas un nombre parfait -- it is
1 n'est pas un nombre parfait
6 n'est pas un nombre parfait --- is as well
le produit des nombres non-parfaits est: 0
Voulez vous faire un autre calcul, (o/n)?n

@shack • 07 Dec, 2010 To generate perfect numbers:
main()
{
int n,sum;
sum=0;
printf("enter the range");
scanf("%d",&n);
for(int i=1;i<=n;i++)
{
for(int j=1;j<i;j++)
{
if(i%j==0)
sum=sum+j;
}
if(sum==i)
printf("%d\n",i);
sum=0;
}
getch();
}
@Minar • 31 Oct, 2011 hi, can any one tell me whats wrong in my codes here..its not showing any output.😔

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
int main(void)
{
int num,i,sum;
sum=0;
for(num=1;num<=100;num++)
{
for(i=1;i<=num-1;i++)
{
if(!(num%i))
{
sum +=i;
}
}
if(sum==num)printf("%d",sum);

}

getch();
return 0;
}
@YashSoni501 • 16 Jan, 2015 I have made a QBasic Programme to find all the perfect numbers between 1 to 100.... as much you want
