Good point, and part of why I originally included two columns in the quick reference table in the attachment, the lowest and highest integer exponents for Mersenne numbers to have precisely 10n digits, vs. 10n values, n=1,2,..10.
1010^6 has 106+1 decimal digits, but 1010^6-1 has 106, as does 1010^6/9.99 or 1010^6/8.
I just now checked the cell formulas in the underlying spreadsheet against which covers2p, p=0,1,...72.
