Try with Hints

First hint

here 1800=(2)(2)(2)(3)(3)(5)(5) where n=\((p_1^a)(p_2^b)(p_3^c)\)

Second Hint

sum of divisors of 1800

=\((\frac{2^{4}-1}{2-1})\)\((\frac{3^{3}-1}{3-1})\)\((\frac{5^{3}-1}{5-1})\) where sum of divisors of n=\((\frac{p_1^{a+1}-1}{p_1-1})(\frac{p_2^{b+1}-1}{p_2-1})(\frac{p_3^{c+1}-1}{p_3-1})\)
