As the title states, Amicable Numbers currently shows three amicable_MacOS_v_3_0 processes each using 2.79 gigabytes of ram, this is physically impossible as my computer only has 8 gigabytes of ram.
Any Help is much appreciated



(also how do you attach an image?)

This is memory allocated by the program. Not all of it is in the physical computer memory, some part of it will be swapped out if you exceed 8 GB (in your case). It's not recommended because swapping slows down computations significantly.
