Here it is.

Past 50 years? Are you crazy? There's no such information about non-Mersennes except when they were largest known primes.

You expect 3 years woth of data, (on something that is not evenly distributed) to be able to predict 30 times further into the future?
Maybe if you went to the start of GIMPS and began there, that would give you 12 years of data.
Maybe if you consider where the bulk of first time LL's are being returned?

Again, maybe you can use 50 years of data (the computer era) for the mersenne vs. non mersenne. You might actually have to know something about primes and where to find the data to do this.

I have taken out the data points from 2008 (it doesn't take into account that GIMPS is still searching, just that there are no primes), and I gave the chart a more meaningful scale on the y. Further, I removed the clutter.

Which is fine since the information content of this entire thread has been
low to negative.

Don't worry. The failure of RDS to acknowledge that an interesting
idea could lead to some useful school algebra level discussion is
becoming legendary

More data:

I went to Chris Caldwell's site and pulled data from his top 5000 prime list. I could reach back to ~1990 with it. Here is a graph based upon that data. After 5000 his list is spotty.

I also input the data from 1946-1951 era, for general primes. That with the data for mprimes causes the 2 trendlines to be parallel.
