A quick guess on M50 would be 2^76092673  1
The above title is my guess. With some deep research within the mersenne forum, I was able to uncover this as the potential 50th mersenne prime. If this is M50, then this would be relatively close to M49 considering the extensive gaps between mersenne primes as P gets larger, in the expression 2^P  1.
In fact, I was able to prove that for all P prime, 2^P divides (2^(P + 1) + (P + 1)!) iff (if and only if) P is a mersenne prime. This is thus a new primality test, but unfortunately the value (P + 1)! can get very large very quickly, the greater the value of P. My point is, perhaps we could use this primality test to prove that M50 might be a mersenne prime without having to guess, but the only problem is, the values get much too large.

This number is Composite. Which means it is NOT Prime. Ever! Last fiddled with by LaurV on 20180103 at 10:13
