Might miss small sociable number

OEIS sequence [URL="https://oeis.org/A003416"]https://oeis.org/A003416[/URL] may not be complete to 1799281330, also the site [URL="http://djm.cc/sociable.txt"]http://djm.cc/sociable.txt[/URL], since it is not even known whether 56440 is a member of sociable number, however, if so, the length of the cycle of 56440 must be >5000

Reference: [URL="http://factordb.com/sequences.php?se=1&aq=56440&action=last20&fr=0&to=100"]http://factordb.com/sequences.php?se=1&aq=56440&action=last20&fr=0&to=100[/URL]

Note that the Aliquot sequence of 1578 merges with that of 56440

I believe 276 is a "social distance" number.

That means it is a social number, but it will be a long distance till somebody will find out that the sequence 276 ends in 276. :razz:

(edit: or we can have a cycle that includes all [URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aliquot_sequence#Catalan%E2%80%93Dickson_conjecture"]Lehmer's Five[/URL], why not? hehe).

So, yeah, you are right, those OEIS sequences are not complete...

276 is not possible in a sociable cycle, since it is an untouchable number ([URL="https://oeis.org/A005114"]https://oeis.org/A005114[/URL])

Doh, you got me there!

Maybe a later term will be the cycle's start. We don't know if that'll happen yet, but the later terms aren't untouchable. Other sequences (i.e. 10000018198 and 31657014970784) merge with 276.
