Default sigma(n)=x*(x+1)^3

let be sigma(n) the sum of the divisors of n




something is known about numbers n such that


sigma(n)=x*(x+1)^3 with x positive integer?




for example n=69660, sigma(69660)=21*(22^3)




are there infinitely many examples?

If x is a positive integer and f(x) = x*(x+1)^3 - 1 is a prime p, then sigma(p) = p+1 = x*(x+1)^3.

Everyone knows there are infinitely many x for which f(x) is prime (Bunyakovsky and Bateman-Horn conjectures), but nobody knows how to prove it.

The smallest such x is 1.
