You have made another human being happy. There is no greater accomplishment.

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Agreed, really nothing could be better

Are your numbers 10 digits or does that include an area code?

I have the country code +91, but I don't really take that into account

Since I have 7 digit primes, I don't think I would err in finding the partition of 11 digit numbers

It is a computer intensive task that becomes more difficult as the numbers get larger.

I will post my way of splitting it tomorrow

You have a method of splitting it?

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

Offline

It finds out two primes whose sum is the given number. Thats why I talked about it in #141

It must be an algorithm.

Its an algorithm. What other options are there?

Please look at #52

Absolutely none that I know of. The problem is the Goldbach conjecture as you know. It is unsolved.

The problem is Goldbach partition

What do you think about #52?

Yes, what is wrong with that approach?

Nothing. Its running fine.

Tomorrow, I shall pick up a few random contact numbers from the newspaper and post their split up here

That will be good. One split is much easier than finding all of them.

For a certain number, i got 120036 splits

What do you think is the maximum?

Good question

Maybe it has something to do with the comet??

I saw that but I do not see how it can answer the question.

Your question isn't justified,

What is the maximum when the condition is what?

It will increase with the increase in the number
