**Is 96 an abundant number?**

Here we will explain and calculate if 96 is an abundant number and its abundance if applicable.

96 is an abundant number if the sum of its proper divisors is greater than 96.

The sum of its proper divisors is calculated as follows: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 12 + 16 + 24 + 32 + 48 = 156.

156 is greater than 96. Therefore, 96 is an abundant number.

The abundance of 96 is the sum of its proper divisors minus 96. Thus, the abundance of 96 is 156 - 96 = 60
