I am only aware of this general rule.

Spoiler for general formula

That is not to say there aren't any other possibilities for finding perfect numbers.

Perfect numbers are number whose sum of factors are twice the number itself.

Example

1. 6 factors of 6 are 1,2,3 and 6 sum=12 i.e 2 * 6

2. 28 factors 1,2,4,7,14,28 sum=56 i.e 2 * 28

can you tell any other perfect no?

1 has only 1 as a factor so sum is 1

In old (Euclid) times, they did not count the number as its own divisor, but they did count 1. Thus, Perfect Number used to be equal to the sum of its divisors (Aliquot Parts.)

(Don't quote me on that.)
