Abstract: We say that two integers are equidivisible, if they have the same number of divisors. In this paper, we use elementary methods to study runs of equidivisible numbers, that is, sequences of consecutive positive integers which happen to be equidivisible. In particular, we exhibit a run of nine equidivisible numbers each having 48 divisors, starting with 17,796,126,877,482,329,126,044.
