78 is the 12-th triangular number.

It is a practical number, because each smaller number is the sum of distinct divisors of 78, and also a Zumkeller number, because its divisors can be partitioned in two sets with the same sum (84).

78 is a primitive abundant number, since it is smaller than the sum of its proper divisors, none of which is abundant.

It is a pseudoperfect number, because it is the sum of a subset of its proper divisors.

78 is a wasteful number, since it uses less digits than its factorization.

With its predecessor (77) it forms a Ruth-Aaron pair, since the sum of their distinct prime factors is the same (18).
