Determine if a number is perfect, abundant, or deficient based on Nicomachus' (60 - 120 CE) classification scheme for natural numbers.
The Greek mathematician Nicomachus devised a classification scheme for natural numbers, 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 15 is (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.
There are two different methods of getting set up to run the tests with Objective-C:
objc
as a test runner utility.Both are described in more detail here: http://exercism.io/languages/objective-c
When submitting an exercise, make sure your solution file is in the same directory as the test code.
The submit command will look something like:
exercism submit <path-to-exercism-workspace>/objective-c/perfect-numbers/PerfectNumbers.m
You can find the Exercism workspace by running exercism debug
and looking for the line beginning
with Workspace.
