That is not a prime number. For it to be a Mersenne Prime, the exponent mus be prime. Your's is not.

Next time you think your formula found a prime, check it yourself the software is found at mersenne.org. That way you won't have to share credit with anyone else!

https://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM: 283 243137 = 3 × 17 × 23 × 241469
Mersenne numbers with composite (factorable) exponents are never prime: https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...13&postcount=4 so we know that 2^{283243137}1 has several factors and is not prime. (OP may benefit from the beginning of the larger reference material at https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=24607)

To make what everybody else said already, more explicit:
Your exponent 283243137 is divisible by 3. So 283243137 = 3*N. Then the number you propose, namely 2^283243137  1, is equal to 2^(3*N)  1 = (2^3)^N  1. And that will be divisible by 2^3  1 = 7. So the number you suggest, is divisible by 7 (because your exponent is divisible by 3). /JeppeSN

What formula?
The alleged prime 2^283243137  1 can easily be shown to be composite without using a computer or calculator. Sum the decimal digits of the exponent: 33. (Sometimes called "casting out nines") The digit sum is obviously divisible by 3. Any number 2^n1 where n= a x b is composite, is composite, and is a repdigit (number with repeating digits), with factors 2^a1 and 2^b1 easily visible when expressed in base 2^a and 2^b respectively. Consider 2^81 = 255 = 2^(2*4)1 2^21 = 3 = 255/85. 2^41 = 15 = 255/17. 2^41 = 15 = 2^21 * cofactor 5. For an exponent with 4 distinct prime factors, for example from the OP, 283243137: https://www.alpertron.com.ar/ECM.HTM: 283243137 = 3 × 17 × 23 × 241469 a=3 (repdigit 2^3  1 = 7's in base 2^3 = 8) b=17 (repdigit 2^17  1 = 131071's in base 2^17 = 131072) c=23 (repdigit 2^23  1 = 8388607's in base 2^23 = 8388608) d=241469 (repdigit 2^241469  1 in base 2^241469) The number has numerous factors (at least 14, as shown below), each of which corresponds to being able to express the number as a repdigit in some base 2^B where 2^B=factor+1. For an exponent with four distinct prime factors, a, b, c, d, there are unique factors as follows prime factors 2^a1 2^b1 2^c1 2^d1 composite factors 2^(ab)1 2^(ac)1 2^(ad)1 2^(bc)1 2^(bd)1 2^(cd)1 2^(abc)1 2^(abd)1 2^(bcd)1 There's also a cofactor, whatever 2^(abcd)1 / (2^a1) / (2^b1) / (2^c1) / (2^d1) is. Which may be prime or composite.
