### Abstract

A number theoretic function f(n) is called multiplicative if f(ab) = f(a)f(b) for (a, b) = 1, it is called additive if f(a b) = f(a) + f(b) for (a, b) = 1. A function f(n) is said to have a distribution function if for every c the density g(c) of integers satisfying f(n) < c exists and g(— ∞) = 0, g(∞) = 1. In this note we give some best possible estimates for g(c + 1/t) - g(t), for the case of f(n) = σ(n)/n.
