Your work is thought out pretty well but as Tony says, it does not seem to be anything new. Please take a look at this webpage and see how it relates.


P.S. The underlying failure of your method is that it does not take into account the tremendous number of possible factors in for example a 10 million digit number. Do the math. Work out the decimal expression of a 10 million digit number and then figure out how many possible factors exist based on your method. Now figure out how long it will take to test all the possible factors.
