Wrong again, as usual. Do us all a favor. Stop answering questions until you actually
learn some number theory.

Trying is indeed the correct word. You are not succeeding.

 2. Do you need to learn pari functions? Or to use pari predefined functions to get the answer? If so, look at help for vecsum() and divisors() functions. s=0; for(n=3*10^8,4*10^8,z=vecsum(divisors(n)); if(s
The correct way to do this will give the result in seconds and does not use the
divisors function. It does require using the computer in your head along with some
math. It also requires knowing how one computes the sum of divisors
from the prime factorization *without* knowing/computing the non-prime divisors.
Your "brute force/try all possibilities" is simple minded and horribly inefficient.

Follow on. Give an estimate for the largest prime factor of the
answer without doing any computations at all. You may express your

Hint: psi(x) ~ x.

Explain why this question is relevant to the original question.

Man, don't you think that I worked a bit too much for those aliquot sequences to be unaware of the fact that ? I may not have your math knowledge, but at least see my posts in the past, related to the subject. Do you see what the OP is posting? He's not learning number theory here, but how to set and reset variables in computer... He has to learn not to compute the same thing ever and ever, etc. and you want to teach him academic stuff.

We however agree about the last sentence. This way of computing is "horribly inefficient", regardless of the fact that you use the divisors, like I did, or the prime factors, like you suggested . Because the factorization is the hard part, not combining them in products, or sums...

----
p.s. is matjax broken again? it seems tag works, but matjax not, or at least, not in previews...

I can't see any professor giving this computational problem as an exercise in
how to write code or in learning Pari syntax. That could be done by RTFM.

It has to be an exercise in how to derive and code the best method. Code syntax
is too trivial. If it is a weird exercise in Pari syntax then the correct answer is indeed
RTFM.

The point of such an exercise is to determine that using factorization is the wrong way
to do it. It is in the "Computer Science and CNT" group and not the "programming"
group. It is also learning that this problem requires finding a solution that has
many (necessarily small) prime factors.

Also, the OP said he needed help with a task using GP and not help learning Pari/GP.
Note that there is a subgroup devoted to Pari itself if the point of the exercise were to learn it.

Agree. We are in violent agreement here. You quoted my post #8, points 1 and 2, and almost all the text, but omitted point 3, which mainly said the same thing as you say:

One colleague presented program with one line of code only, he was calling the "sort" function in dBase (at the time) and was very upset when the professor, laughing his lungs out, marked him "failed". He even didn't understand that the requirement was not to sort a stupid, 20 items list, which could be easily sorted by pencil, but to learn the algorithms. True story!
