Definition

Let $m_1, m_2, m_3 \in \Z_{>0}$ be (strictly) positive integers.

$\tuple {m_1, m_2, m_3}$ are an amicable triplet if and only if the aliquot sum of any one of them equals the sum of the other two:

the aliquot sum of $m_1$ is equal to $m_2 + m_3$

and:

the aliquot sum of $m_2$ is equal to $m_1 + m_3$

and:

the aliquot sum of $m_3$ is equal to $m_1 + m_2$


Examples

$1980$, $2016$ and $2556$

$\left({1980, 2016, 2556}\right)$ form an amicable triplet.


$103 \, 340 \, 640$, $123 \, 228 \, 768$ and $124 \, 015 \, 008$

The following numbers form an amicable triplet:

$103 \, 340 \, 640$
$123 \, 228 \, 768$
$124 \, 015 \, 008$
