This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

All that i can see is your question and $\displaystyle \sum _{ n=1 }^{ \infty }{ \frac { { \sigma }_{ 2 }\left( n \right) }{ { n }^{ 6 } } } =\frac { { \pi }^{ 6 } }{ 945 } \times \frac { { \pi }^{ 4 } }{ 90 } =\frac { { \pi }^{ 10 } }{ 85050 }$

Yes you are right Joel.

Go further .... Try with sigma_3

- 5 years, 2 months ago

That will give odd zetas

- 5 years, 2 months ago

It will give odd zeta which is what you do not what as they are irreducable

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Sorry not with odd zetas try with even zetas andbakso change power of n with change in sigma_x

Can you actually find 8505000 or 8505?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

- 5 years, 3 months ago

Not in that sense .

- 5 years, 3 months ago

Then, what is the next number?

- 5 years, 3 months ago

I think your number is correct , but i want its speciality

- 5 years, 3 months ago

no '0" after 5 in 1st...... 1 '0' after 5 in 2nd.....Therefore ans is 85050000.I did like this. :P

- 5 years, 3 months ago

nope it is related to Dirichlet series .

- 5 years, 3 months ago

Something related to zeta as the sigma is the divisor function

- 5 years, 3 months ago

You. Are right ... Dirichlet's series of sigma function...

- 5 years, 3 months ago

Is a geometric progression with reason 10

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I see the pattern
