For all real numbers x, #x# is the sum of all the distinct positive factors of x.

Thanks for your help.

hi travish19

Welcome to Gmatclub.

The distinct positive factors of 18 => 1,2,3,6,9,18 => sum = 39
The distinct positive factors of 6 => 1,2,3,6 => sum = 12

39/12 = 13/4

answer 13/4

thanks

I know where my weaknesses are and when I get something that seems abstract (#18#) I tend to freeze. I appreciate the help.
