    Default More number theory

    Some code examples. I think I will focus on more useful and practical code from now on. I'm pretty sure noone cares about number theory. Can you guys give me a little insight as to how to structure and guide my studies?

    //Jeremiah A. Walker
    //Euclidean algorithm to get the GCD(Greatest Common Denominator) of two numbers
    public class gcd
    	public static long Euclid(long a, long b)
    		if(b == 0)//if b is 0, return a
    			return a;
    		else//if b\ is not 0 find GCD
    			return Euclid(b, a % b);
    	}//end Euclid
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    		long n0 = Long.parseLong(args[0]);
    		long n1 = Long.parseLong(args[1]);
    		long res;
    		if (n0 > n1)
    			res = Euclid(n0, n1);
    		else if(n1 > n0)
    			res = Euclid(n1, n0);
    			res = n0;
    	}//end main
    }//end gcd

    //Jeremiah A. Walker
    //An integer is said to be a perfect number if its factors add up to the integer
    //For instance 6 is perfect because 1+2+3 =6 
    //Write a program that can determine if a number is perfect and print all the perfect numbers between 0 and x
    import java.util.*;//scanner and arraylist
    public class pnum
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    	System.out.println("Give me an integer between 2 and 10,000:  ");//asks user for a number
    	int number = input.nextInt();//reads user input
    	int total = 0;//total, stores the sum of the factors of the user input number
    	ArrayList<Integer> factor = new ArrayList<Integer>();
    	for(int i = 1; i < number; i++)
    		if(number % i == 0)
    			total += i;
    		}//end if
    	}//end for
    		for(int i = 1; i < factor.size(); i++)
    			System.out.print(" +" + factor.get(i));
    		}//end for
    		System.out.print(" = " + total + "\n");
    		if(total != number)
    			System.out.print("This number is not perfect.\n");
    			System.out.print("This number is perfect.\n");
    	}//end main
    }//end pnum

    //Jeremiah A. Walker
    //Print all the perfect numbers from 2 to 10000
    //Check each one 
    import java.util.*;
    public class pnum2
    	public static void main(String[] args )
    		for(int n = 2; n<=10000; n++)
    				System.out.println(n + " is perfect");
    	}//end main
    	private static boolean isPerfect(int n)
    		int total = 0;
    		for(int i = 1; i < n; i++)
    			if( n % i == 0) 
    				total += i;
    			return (total == n);
    	}//end isPerfect
    }//end class pnum2
