(I really wish the previously referenced task could be renamed, as far too many people think what is described is actually AKS) Tempted to post the primality regex...

This is nothing but trivial algebra. Where is the ALGORITHM?
You have failed to specify any kind of procedure. All you have done is
assert the existence of some values satisfying some relations.

It appears that you suggest to select n=1, 2, 3, ... until you get the factorization. This is just Fermat's method.
