Thank you for the correcting my mistake charybdis.

Somehow I erred at computing the valuation(OP-Number-1,2) as 2 rather than 3.
In the integer field if valuation(n-1,2) =n' for any positive odd integer then if
m==a*b
if a'==m' then b'>a'
if a'<m' then b'==a'
Here my error was that m'==2 rather than 3 and since neither a' nor b' could be less than 2 then I wrongly concluded that one had to be equal to 2.

Again, thank you very much for the correction. Much appreciated. Last fiddled with by a1call on 2021-04-10 at 02:15   2021-04-10, 02:57   #13

Yes there is. If you go to oeis A000522 then 2*a(32)*a(33)=s.   2021-04-10, 12:47   #14

Since OP number divides s^2 + 1 for s given by frmky, all factors are congruent to 1 (mod 4), hence congruent to 1 or 5 (mod 8). OP number is congruent to 1 (mod 8). Hence, evenly many of its factors are congruent to 5 (mod 8).

And by golly, zero is even!    2021-04-11, 10:51 #15 mersenneNoob   "Nigel" Apr 2021 101002 Posts OP=?? Why did you all start calling the number OP-number?   2021-04-11, 10:54   #16

There's a trick to find the remainder mod 8 that's so foolproof, it even works for me: just take the remainder mod 8 of the last 3 digits. In this case, the OP's number ends in 529, and 529 = 8*66 + 1.

Exercise: To compute the remainder of n (mod 2^k) or (mod 5^k), it suffices to compute the remainder of the last k decimal digits of n (mod 2^k) or (mod 5^k).   2021-04-11, 16:43 #18 a1call   "Rashid Naimi" Oct 2015 Remote to Here/There 1000100111012 Posts I'm afraid you are giving me too much credit for being able to do arithmetic in my head. I actually used Pari and specifically remember getting 2 as the valuation. I can only assume that it must have been a typo somewhere. But thanks for the calculation trick. ETA Being a CAD designer for most of your life, pretty much strips you of being able to do any arithmetic in your head. It's sort of a "if you don't use, you lose it" in the extreme. Accordingly with the advent voice-recognition and speech-to-text software, I expect the future generations not being able to correctly spell a word if their lives depended on it. That would put me as much at home as it would kriesel out.

Ex: 1234 is not divisible by 4, because 34 is not divisible by 4, this number is 2 (mod 4). This works because you can write 1234 as 1200+34, and 1200 is always divisible by 4 (as is multiple of 100, so it is 4 times multiple of 25), so it is enough to examine the last 2 digits. You can apply that for 8, etc. Edit: For 8 there is even a simpler rule, where you look first if the third digit from the right (the "hundreds", i.e. the 2 in 1234) is odd or even, and according with it, you examine the last two. Can you say why that works, and how do we know at a simple glance that 1234 is 2 (mod 8)?

I quite often use this to check primality of small numbers (<30030) without needing to use a calculator. If it passes this check, and the simple ones for 2, 3 and 5, mental trial division by 17, 19, 23 and 29 is straightforward and reaches 6469693230. Checking divisibility by 37 is easy enough by casting out the 999s. An additional mental division by 31 suffices to 7420738134810 (which is somewhat over 7 billion). Long before that I tend to resort to computer assistance.   2021-04-12, 10:30   #21

I realise that is profoundly misleading, not to say wrong.

37# is certainly >7.4 billion, and so on, but the procedure outlined work only to 41^2-1 = 1680 as a primality test. It filters out 85% of composites in the limit.

Still, I find it useful.   2021-04-21, 06:44 #22 mersenneNoob   "Nigel" Apr 2021 22×5 Posts Another 129 digit number Code: 483100240063213823403065506870079481290504898733191281212060160586898805944701565058228233588987690426223309716587384614909677337 is my second 129-digit challenge number.
