Here's one way: Start with an even or odd (0 or 1), depending on what you want. Then instead of incrementing by one using i++, increment by two using i+=2.

Here's another way: Increment i as before. Then int odd = (2*i) + 1.

this is what i got:

Enter a number:

28

The perfect numbers are: 6

The perfect numbers are: 28

The Abundant numbers are: 14

The Abundant numbers are: 20

The Abundant numbers are: 26

though i need the odd numbers

thanks for the support

EDIT: actually thats an error, 14 is not an abundant number, the factors of 14(not counting the number itself) are 2+7=9<i, and it needs to be >i

Well, it found the 3 perfect numbers in that range (the 4th isn't until 8128). And it found the first abundant odd number, 945, as well as odd multiples of 945 within range, 2835 and 4725. So the results

The real questions are:

How confident are you in your algorithm? Do you have a way to verify test results? (If this page is accurate, there are 2487 abundant numbers below 10,000. You might try using your code to count these, and see if you get the same result.)

*look*plausible.
