Determine if a number is perfect, abundant, or deficient based on Nicomachus' (60 - 120 CE) classification scheme for positive integers.
The Greek mathematician Nicomachus devised a classification scheme for positive integers, identifying each as belonging uniquely to the categories of perfect, abundant, or deficient based on their aliquot sum.
The aliquot sum is defined as the sum of the factors of a number not including the number itself.
For example, the aliquot sum of
1 + 3 + 5 = 9.
Implement a way to determine whether a given number is perfect. Depending on your language track, you may also need to implement a way to determine whether a given number is abundant or deficient.
Implement a procedure named
classify that takes a number as argument and returns either
