Properties and families

Property or family Parameter values First few members of the family Proof of satisfaction/membership/containment
perfect number: number such that the divisor sum function of is first perfect number divisor sum is
primorial: product of the first few prime numbers product of the first two prime numbers (if we start the indexing from the zeroth primorial, which is an empty product and evaluates to 1, it is the third in the list) 1, 2, 6, 30, 210, 2310 View list on OEIS The first two primes are 2 and 3, and their product is 6.
factorial: product of the first few natural numbers product of the first three natural numbers (if we start the indexing from the zeroth factorial, which is an empty product and evaluates to 1, it is the fourth in the list) 1, 2, 6, 24, 120, 720, 5040, 40320, 362880, [SHOW MORE] View list on OEIS
lcm of all numbers so far: lcm of the first few natural numbers lcm of the first three natural numbers 1, 1, 2, 6, 12, 60, 60, 420, [SHOW MORE] View list on OEIS .
