In this paper we consider a class of functions $ \mathcal {U}$ of arithmetical functions which include $ \tilde{P}(n)/n$, where $ \tilde{P}(n):=n \prod_{p\vert n}(2-\frac{1}{p})$. For any given $ U\in\mathcal {U}$, we obtain the asymptotic formula for $ \sum_{n\leq x}U(n)$, which improves a result of De Koninck and Kátai.
