A perfect number is a number, which, when adding all of its proper divisors (all divisors except himself) give the number itself

Divisors of 6: 1,2,3 ------>1+2+3=6

The next proper number is 28

Divisors of 28:1,2,4,7,14 -------> 1+2+4+7+14=28

All perfect numbers found so far are found using this formula: 2^(p-1)*((2^p)-1), where p, and ((2^p)-1) are prime numbers
