According to Euclid Euler Theorem, a perfect number which is even, can be represented in the form where n is a prime number and is a Mersenne prime number. It is a product of a power of 2 with a Mersenne prime number. This theorem establishes a connection between a Mersenne prime and an even perfect number.
Some Examples (Perfect Numbers) which satisfy Euclid Euler Theorem are: 6, 28, 496, 8128, 33550336, 8589869056, 137438691328 Explanations: 1) 6 is an even perfect number. So, is can be written in the form (22 - 1) * (2(2 - 1)) = 6 where n = 2 is a prime number and 2^n - 1 = 3 is a Mersenne prime number. 2) 28 is an even perfect number. So, is can be written in the form (23 - 1) * (2(3 - 1)) = 28 where n = 3 is a prime number and 2^n - 1 = 7 is a Mersenne prime number. 3) 496 is an even perfect number. So, is can be written in the form (25 - 1) * (2(5 - 1)) = 496 where n = 5 is a prime number and 2^n - 1 = 31 is a Mersenne prime number.
Take each prime number and form a Mersenne prime with it. Mersenne prime = where n is prime. Now form the number (2^n – 1)*(2^(n – 1)) and check if it is even and perfect. If the condition satisfies then it follows Euclid Euler Theorem.
Generating first few numbers satisfying Euclid Euler's theorem (2^2 - 1) * (2^(2 - 1)) = 6 (2^3 - 1) * (2^(3 - 1)) = 28 (2^5 - 1) * (2^(5 - 1)) = 496 (2^7 - 1) * (2^(7 - 1)) = 8128 (2^13 - 1) * (2^(13 - 1)) = 33550336 (2^17 - 1) * (2^(17 - 1)) = 8589869056 (2^19 - 1) * (2^(19 - 1)) = 137438691328
