Problem
Let . What is the ratio of the sum of the odd divisors of to the sum of the even divisors of ?
Solution 1
Prime factorize to get . For each odd divisor of , there exist even divisors of , therefore the ratio is
Solution 2
Prime factorizing , we see . The sum of 's odd divisors are the sum of the factors of without , and the sum of the even divisors is the sum of the odds subtracted by the total sum of divisors. The sum of odd divisors is given by and the total sum of divisors is Thus, our ratio is
