Prime Numbers!!!Wilson's theorem can be used by programmers to check whether a number is prime or not Last edited by noobard (20090608 20:16:38) Everything that has a begining has an EnD!!! #2 20090608 20:20:37
Re: Prime Numbers!!!Hi noobard; Last edited by bobbym (20090608 20:32:17) In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20090609 13:46:24
Re: Prime Numbers!!!ya bobbym ... true as u say............................. Everything that has a begining has an EnD!!! #4 20090610 07:39:44
Re: Prime Numbers!!!I think bobbym's point is that, even for computers, the calculation of large factorials is not a very good way of testing if numbers are prime. #5 20090610 19:10:59

Re: Prime Numbers!!!
If I type Factorization(1111111111111111111); into Magma the output is [ <1111111111111111111, 1> ]. You'll have to tell me if this is showing all the digits. #8 20090615 15:28:43

Re: Prime Numbers!!!It is telling me that 1111111111111111111 is prime. However, the 1 in [ <1111111111111111111, 1> ] means that the prime factor 1111111111111111111 has multiplicity 1. #10 20090615 22:01:40
Re: Prime Numbers!!!Me too. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #11 20090615 22:34:45
Re: Prime Numbers!!!Is divisible by 7? Character is who you are when no one is looking. #12 20090616 01:28:52
