Example of Sigma Function of Integer

$\sigma \left({6}\right) = 12$

where $\sigma$ denotes the $\sigma$ function.


Proof

We have that:

$6 = 2 \times 3$

Hence:

\(\displaystyle \sigma \left({6}\right)\) \(=\) \(\displaystyle \left({2 + 1}\right) \left({3 + 1}\right)\) Sigma Function of Non-Square Semiprime
\(\displaystyle \) \(=\) \(\displaystyle 3 \times 4\)
\(\displaystyle \) \(=\) \(\displaystyle 2^2 \times 3\)
\(\displaystyle \) \(=\) \(\displaystyle 12\)
