#### Numbers that are the sum of the squares of their prime factors?

A number which is equal to the sum of the squares of its prime factors with multiplicity:
- $16=2^2+2^2+2^2+2^2$
- $27=3^2+3^2+3^2$
Are these the only two such numbers to exist?
There has to be...

#### Can it be proven/disproven that there are highly composite numbers that prime-factorize into larger primes such as $9999991$?

Of course, following the rules found by Ramanujan, such a highly composite number would need to factorize into all primes ascending up to 9999991 (with descending powers as the primes progress) so...

#### 1+2-3=0; 1+2+3+...+12+13+14-15-16-...-19-20=0; why does this only occur for numbers (3,20,119,696...) which are leg-leg twin pythagorean triples?

The pivot point (+13+14-15) (+83+84-85) tends to the 1/√2 of the sum. So 14/20, then 84/119, then 492/696 is tending toward 1/√2.
