 Apr26 comment Can an odd number $n$ divide $2^n-1$? Of course there is the case $n = 1$, but presumably you meant other than that.

But that doesn't sound like pre-calculus. Mar14 awarded Critic Mar14 comment Currently, what is the largest publicly known prime number such that all prime numbers less than it are known? For very large primes, I believe that probabilistic approaches are used to verify prime-ness. So I think that it may be possible that we can get faster the $\mathcal{O}\left(\frac{n}{\log n}\right)$ bound at the expense of accuracy, which we can rectify by later verifying the prime with another computer. Mar14 awarded Commentator Mar14 comment What's the probability of creating a Hello World Program? @Jatt You can have more or less any amount of whitespace between keywords like public, class, etc., so it's somewhat larger, but not significantly so. Though you could try another language — as the joke goes, “I once piped /dev/random into Perl and got a web server”. Mar14 comment Currently, what is the largest publicly known prime number such that all prime numbers less than it are known? I think there are faster sieves, like the Sieve of Atkin. Mar14 comment What's the probability of creating a Hello World Program? @arbautjc I think that the printable characters total $127 - 32$, plus up to two for newlines (since Windows uses \r\n), so you'd have $\frac{1}{96^{127-32+2}}$, not $\frac{1}{96^{128}}$. Mar14 comment Ultrafilter on $\omega$ @BrianM.Scott I didn't think it was so obvious 28 minutes ago. Mar14 answered On prime numbers Mar14 comment On prime numbers Of course, large Mersenne primes would be ridiculously easy to find if you could just take 2 to the last known Mersenne prime and subtract 1. Mar14 comment Ultrafilter on $\omega$ The lack of question marks. These are all statements. Mar14 comment Ultrafilter on $\omega$ While I admit I don't know this subject, I don't see a question here. Do you have to prove that there's an ultrafilter on $\omega$ such that every $A \in \mathscr{U}$ has a positive upper density?
