1. ## Homework Help

I am new to C++ programming, and have this homework where I need to find all the perfect numbers to 1000.

I have worked on this problem for a while now, and really trying to get it figured out, but I'm doing something wrong. I was wondering if someone could turn my head as to what it is.

Code:
```int    testNum = 2; //the number to be tested to see if its perfect - i started it ith 2 since the perfect number must be the sum of all divisors excluding itself.
int testDiv; //this sets test divisors to see if it goes into the number
int accum = 0; // sums the divisors to see if they equal the test number
int counter = 2; // count started at 2 siunce I know that there are none at 1

while( counter < 1000)
{
for (int testDiv = 1; testDiv < testNum; testDiv++)
{
if(testNum % testDiv == 0)
{
accum += testDiv;
}

if (accum == testNum)
{
cout << testNum << " is a perfect number less
than 1000." <<endl;
}

}

counter++;
testNum++;```
This is just a snippet of the code in question. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

2. > int accum = 0;
Put this inside your while loop

> if (accum == testNum)
Move this outside your for loop

Perhaps....

3. Code:
```			    cout << testNum << " is a perfect number less
than 1000." <<endl;```
And put that all on one line, or it won't compile. Or you can split it:
Code:
```cout << "hello world";

cout << "hello "
"world";

cout << "hello \
world";

cout << "hello "
<< "world";```
One of those should do.
