That's a basic math fact, one you would need to know before you try applying any statistical principles or analysis to predicting mersennes. It seems you're trying to use fancy words for which you aren't quite sure of the meaning. An average isn't statistics- that's 5th grade. Show you're smarter than a 5th grader.
