Given an integer number and we have to check whether it is perfect number or not?

This Python program is used to find its all positive divisors excluding that number.

Explanation: For Example, 28 is a perfect number since divisors of 28 are 1, 2, 4,7,14 then sum of its divisor is 1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14 = 28.

Note: A perfect number is a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its proper positive divisors.

### Python code to find perfect number

```if __name__ == "__main__" :

# initialisation
i = 2;sum = 1;

# take input from user and typecast into integer
n = int(input("Enter a number: "))

# iterating till n//2 value
while(i <= n//2 ) :

# if proper divisor then add it.
if (n % i == 0) :

sum += i

i += 1

# check sum equal to n or not
if sum == n :
print(n,"is a perfect number")

else :
print(n,"is not a perfect number")

```

Output

```First run:
Enter a number: 28
28 is a perfect number

Second run:
Enter a number: 14
14 is not a perfect number
```
