58 HlSTOBY OF THE THEOEY OF NUMBERS. [CHAP. II
G6rardin68 gave five new solutions of (i):
x=184.108.40.2063.499, t/ = 220.127.116.11.37.61.157.
2/ = 18.104.22.168.132.17.222.214.171.124.193.197. z=33126.96.36.199.193.701,
t/ = 29335188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206, the last following from his67 fourth pair in view of
cr(39ll3): (r(2333)==283.112612: 233.52 = 22112612: 52.
A. Cunningham and J. Blaikie69 found solutions of the form x=2"p of s(x) =02, where s(n) is the sum of the divisors <n of n.
PRODUCT OF ALIQUOT PARTS.
Paul Halcke75 noted that the product of the aliquot parts of 12, 20, or 45 is the square of the number; the product for 24 or 40 is the cube; the product for 48, 80 or 405 is the biquadrate.
E. Lionnet76 defined a perfect number of the second kind to be a number equal to the product of its aliquot parts. The only ones are p3 and pq, where p and q are distinct primes.
