I think he's using base 21 with 3 and 7 as the primary factors instead of 2 and 5.

look
look _for your information fyi
8191*(1613*(53*(3*5)*157)*2731)=4503599627370495. I only can do this because I have Maple which is a computer language m

The least significant digit 5 immediately shows that composite.
52 = 2 x 2 x 13, so 2^{52}1 must be composite, with factors 2^{2}1 = 3 and 2^{13}1 = 8191 among others. https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...13&postcount=4 4503 599627 370495 = 3 × 5 × 53 × 157 × 1613 × 2731 × 8191 (using https://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM, no need for Maple, Mathematica, pari/GP, etc.) so the corresponding Mn necessarily has factors 7, 31, 2^{53}1, ... and so cannot be a prime. (Seven easily determined factors other than one or itself.) https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...13&postcount=4 again. Log 4503 599627 370495 / log 1.47576 ~ 92.61, so if it had been prime, it would be a more likely candidate for exponent of ~Mp#92* than Mp#52*. (See #32 of https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...65&postcount=3) To qualify as an April Fool joke it would need to be posted on an April 1. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...w/81820436.cms That's some kind of record worst yet Mp#52* prediction. Please do not try to outdo that. Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20211209 at 11:08

Just for checkpointing purposes. It has been over 3 years since the last MP was found. And the simple calc of how much bigger the current FTC milestone exponent is than M51's exponent is 28.61%
