Re: Deduce whether or not 4^545 + 545^4 is Prime

What is that method?

Hi;

If you know the form you want you can curve fit.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

I don't follow... how will curve fitting help you factorise a^6 + 8b^6 for example?
