# Python Program to Check Perfect Number

• Check perfect number using for loop
• Check perfect number using while loop

### What is a Perfect Number ?

A perfect number is a number that is equal to the sum of its positive divisors, excluding the number itself. That is, the number 6 has divisors 1, 2, and 3 (excluding 6 itself). And 1+2+3 is equal to 6. Therefore 6 is a perfect number.

## Check Perfect Number using for Loop

The question is, write a program in Python that checks whether a number is a perfect or not using for loop. Here is its answer:

```print("Enter the Number:")
num = int(input())
sum = 0
for i in range(1, num):
if num%i==0:
sum = sum+i
if num==sum:
print("It is a Perfect Number")
else:
print("It is not a Perfect Number")```

Here is its sample run:

Now supply the input say 6 and press `ENTER` key to check and print whether it is a perfect number or not as shown in the snapshot given below:

#### Modified Version of Previous Program

This is the modified version of previous program, uses end= and str(). Rest of the things are almost similar to previous program. The end= is used to skip printing of an automatic newline. And the str() converts any type into a string type.

```print(end="Enter the Number: ")
num = int(input())
sum = 0
for i in range(1, num):
if num%i==0:
sum = sum+i
if num==sum:
print("\n" + str(num) + " is a Perfect Number")
else:
print("\n" + str(num) + " is not a Perfect Number")```

Here is its sample run with user input 496:

## Check Perfect Number using while Loop

The question is, write a Python program to check for perfect number using while loop. Here is its answer:

```print(end="Enter the Number: ")
num = int(input())
sum = 0
i = 1
while i<num:
if num%i==0:
sum = sum+i
i = i+1
if num==sum:
print("\n" + str(num) + " is a Perfect Number")
else:
print("\n" + str(num) + " is not a Perfect Number")```
