Best Answer

If the sum of all a number's factors (apart from itself) is equal to the original number, then the number is perfect. If this sum is less than the number, it is deficient. If the sum is more than the number, it is abundant. The factors of 70 are:

1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35 and 70. 1+2+5+7+10+14+35 = 74. Thus the number 70 is abundant.

it is perfect i believe the factors are 1,2,4,7,and 14

A perfect number is one with factors (apart from itself) that sum to give the original number. An abundant number is one where this sum is greater than the original number. A deficient number is one where the sum is less than the original number. The factors of 75 are 1, 3, 5, 15 and 25. The sum of these numbers is 49. Thus 75 is a deficient number.

To find out if a number is abundant, perfect or deficient, you first need to split it into its prime factors: 34 = 2x17 The next step would be to find any combinations, but as we have only 2 prime factors, those are the two we'll work with. You add these together, with 1, and get 20. When this sums to less than the original number it's a deficient number. 20 is less than 34, and so 34 is a deficient number.
