Maximum sum of distinct numbers such that LCM of these numbers is N
• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 22 Mar, 2021

Given a positive number N. The task is to find maximum sum of distinct numbers such that the LCM of all these numbers is equal to N.
Examples:

```Input  : 2
Output : 3
The distinct numbers you can have are
just 1 and 2 and their sum is equal to 3.

Input  : 5
Output : 6```

As the LCM of all the numbers is N. So all the numbers must be the divisors of N and all the numbers are distinct so answer must be the sum of all the divisors of N. To find all the divisors efficiently refer to article https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-all-divisors-of-a-natural-number-set-2/
