:a rather arbitrary and contrived definition.
70 is abundant, so 2n+1-sigma(n) < 0. I suspect it should be restricted
to deficient numbers, so that both quantities are positive.
But I'm not going to check whether that gives the correct figures.
It is a criminal waste of the valuable time of many fine mathematicians
for the list to try and reverse engineer the definitions for garbage
sequences like this: better would be to immediately delete the sequence
and return a form letter to the submitter saying "the entries in the
sequence you submitted don't match your definition, please resubmit
after correcting your errors".
