# Find the Nth term of the Zumkeller Numbers

• Last Updated : 22 Jun, 2020

Zumkeller numbers are the set of numbers whose divisors can be partitioned into two disjoint sets that sum to the same value. The first few zumkeller numbers are 6, 12, 20, 24, 28, 30, 40, 42, 48, 54, ….

Find the Nth Zumkeller Number: Given a number N, the task is to find the Nth Zumkeller number.

Examples:

Input: N = 2
Output: 12
Explanation:
The second Zumkeller number is 12.

Input: N = 5
Output: 28

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: The following steps are followed to compute the answer.

1. Get the number N.
2. Iterate over the loop starting from i = 1 until Nth Zumkeller number is found.
3. Check the number ‘i’ is a zumkeller number or not.
4. If yes, then repeat the above step for i+1 and increment the counter.
5. If no, then repeat the above step for i+1 without incrementing the counter.
6. Finally, when the counter is equal to the number N, that number is the N-th zumkeller number. Print the value of ‘i’ and break the loop.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
