Let $n \in \Z_{>0}$ be a positive integer.

Let the $\sigma$ value of $n$ be square.

Let $3$ not be a divisor of $n$.

Then the $\sigma$ value of $3 n$ is square.


From Numbers whose $\sigma$ is Square:

$\map \sigma 3 = 4 = 2^2$

The result follows as a specific instance of Product of Coprime Numbers whose Sigma is Square has Square Sigma.
