### Is 444 a deficient number?

No, 444 is not a deficient number: to be deficient, 444 should have been such that 444 is larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 444 without 444 itself (that is 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 12 + 37 + 74 + 111 + 148 + 222 = 620).

In fact, 444 is an abundant number; 444 is strictly smaller than the sum of its proper divisors (that is 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 12 + 37 + 74 + 111 + 148 + 222 = 620). The smallest abundant number is 12.
