What minimum exponent would give 100M digit prime?
Hello All,
What minimum exponent value would give a 100M digit prime? Also is there a calculator on the internet or that I could download that could give me the specific number that any exponent I use in the formula 2^P  1? Like to calculate the value of: 2^49254458  1? Of course my computer's calculator gives infinity!!!!! Thanks. Last fiddled with by odin on 20100418 at 01:22
