i chekced a few perfect numbers with module 6 and, a nice property is that all mod 6 equal 4 (at least for those i checked), i guees that if an odd perfect number would exist then its mod 6 would be different.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i wonder how to prove that for every even perfect number greater than 6, its mod 6 equal 4?

i guess because its even it's divisble by 2, and then the question becomes how to prove that mod 3 equal 2, then how do you prove/disprove the assertion?
