My guess is that you are only testing the 'p' in 2p-1. We are talking in the forum about the whole number.
So your number 156635789 is a small prime. But the number 2156635789-1 is a number 47,152,071 digits long (~47 megabytes just to right all of the digits).

If you wrote neo3, how does it test such a number to see if it is prime? If you do it only by division, then you are only testing the smaller number.

Yes, I agree with you. I try millions of numbers every day.

369.452.123

I will try with the programs you said

Thank you...

Any number that is below 100,000,000,000,000,000 that is prime is already known. We don't even need to keep the list, because it is easier to check it than to look it up in a list.
It took the ECM website less than 1 second to show that 100040000300000203 is prime.

I invite you to post a link to your source code, or post the code itself as an attachment if it is not on github, sourceforge, etc and not too large for the forum file limits. There are some very talented people on this forum. They may have suggestions for you.

There is no need to explain "how you found the factor", it's easy to verify that it's indeed a factor.

Predictions and dubious claims

Continue with the GIMPS reference blog or elsewhere. Knuth's Algorithms for example. If you haven't read and understood the relevant parts of this classic, Riesel's Prime Numbers and Computer Methods for Factorization, or other well written equivalent, it's probably too soon to be writing much in the way of code.

No problem and thanks for helping. The numbers listed in post 20 are stated in post 28 as coming from the sort of source or process that sounds more like conspiracy theory than number theory. So I see no reason to give them any priority now. It did no harm to trial factor them somewhat, a little early. I feel it's more productive to return to our usual mostly systematic searching in exponent order, than to give these few any extra attention. That's all.

That is certainly true from a mathematical standpoint. However, for those new to the forum (presumably including the OP) it's helpful to provide links and instructions to trial factoring software, so they can reproduce results if desired.

How can I stop if I have never done one? I want the functionality of "you must answer this question to get to the next, or based upon your answer you get different questions."

What platform would you suggest? Perhaps a PDF fill in form?
