And another hit :)
[url]https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=126585[/url] 322498 · 52800819  1 is prime :) 
[QUOTE=pepi37;520028]
322498 · 52800819 (sic)  1 is prime :)[/QUOTE] That is divisible by 7 :razz: 
Pepi,
Please use the exponentiation symbol. Thanks. 
[QUOTE=gd_barnes;520164]Pepi,
Please use the exponentiation symbol. Thanks.[/QUOTE] I never fail to do that, 
And new hit in SR5... prime will be verified soon :)

One down for the Rieselbase 5 conjecture:
[url='https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=134054']64598 * 5^37698541[/url] is prime, 2,635,020 digits, found on 20220614 by PrimeGrid. Curious: the 5 digits of the kvalue appear also in the nvalue. Awaiting official announcement, still some tasks open for this k.

This is the 97th prime with between 2 million and 3 million digits. There are 10 primes in total (in that range) of the form k* 5^n +/ 1. (8 with 1 and 2 with +1)
