A Proof on Quasiperfect Numbers

Quote Quote by Dodo View Post
Hi, Joseph,
there is a problem when going from eq.8 to eq.9: [itex]1 - (h(n) - 2)[/itex] is not [itex]-(h(n)+1)[/itex] (which is negative), but [itex]3 - h(n)[/itex] (which is positive).
Which would mean that my proof is fallous. Oh, well back to the drawing board. Anyone have any ideas where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated.
