Mersenne prime factors of very large numbers
Let N = 2^p + 29 where p is the 20 digit prime exponent in the Number Theory video ( go to You Tube and search for A.K. Devaraj ).
Known Mersenne prime factor of N : 31 known Non Mersenneprime factors of N: 7, 127, and a few more to be listed. Q: If any member can identify a few more Mersenne prime factors I would be happy.

97600641752017987211 is what I got from it but I zoomed in to like 200% . of course PARI said it's not a prime exponent and 7 and 127 are both mersenne primes so they already have 3 mersenne prime factors but no non mersenne prime factors.

Factors of 2^p + 29: 31 and 887 and 937 ( no others below 10^{10} ) 7 and 127 are not factors of 2^p+29.

p=97500641752017987211 is prime.
31  2^p+29 for p==1 mod 10. 101  2^p+29 for p==41 mod 100. 61  2^p+29 for p==5 mod 60.

mod 31 so it actually doesn't happen at p=1 mod 5 ?

N almost surely does not have any other Mersenne prime factors. N doesn't have any prime factors less than 10^8 other than 31, and it's not divisible by 2^q1 for Mersenne exponents q up to 44497. Please explain where the number came from.

Looking at the number again and zooming in it actually looks more like: p=97600541752017987211 which is also prime. In that case factors of 2^{p}+29 up to 10^{10} are: 31 and 1303 and 27737. Last fiddled with by ATH on 20120529 at 02:47
