Many thanks!
I actually took "finite mathematics" which dealt mostly with groups, sets and stuff like that, but I totally forgot about it!
So if I understand right, "smooth" works like this:
128 = 2×2×2×2×2×2×2 < 2 smooth
125 = 5×5×5 < 5 smooth
120 = 2×2×2×3×5 < 5 smooth
121 = 11×11 < 11 smooth
Is it safe to say that you must have the absolute factorization before you can assign a "smooth" value?
I'm not too sure where the "b" is coming from when you mention "bsmooth"...
Finally, what is the correct way to write out a factorization? I've seen it done several ways but I imagine there is an accepted proper way...
