Support Wendover Productions on Patreon: https://www.Patreon.com/Wendover Productions 85650789657397829 + 1402 more digits is an illegal number. To understand why this is, we need to learn a little bit of cryptology, a little bit of math, and a little bit of programming.

i could probably set up a program that finds primes y = n/x (where x is any integer between 1 and x) run x from 1 > x if y returns more then 2 integers (meaning there is factors other then 1 and x) return not prime the problem is, extremelt big numbers with millions of digits are too big for most computers...

Your formular would imply that one is also a prime. Primes are actually defined as having two divisors.

How that specific prime number and decss are related are way beyond the scope of this channel. I'm not even sure the author knows how they are related, given that at some point he's talking about public cryptography, which is unrelated to this number.

you mean to tell me if i have a text file on my system that contains a string of digits say the 1419 digits mentioned i could go to jail. so if i was to say all 1419 digits to someone on the phone me and the other person can go to jail? how would the police and the feds even know that it is an illegal number?

There are so many things wrong with this. First, the algorithm you describe in the beginning on how to determine if a number is prime is not how they do this for large primes. There are so many other theorems on how to determine if a number if prime that are far more efficient. Also, and infinite number of numbers does not imply an infinite number of primes. If you look at any of the dozens of proofs of this fact, none of them simply state "infinite numbers => infinite primes".

Still illegal most likely. With a number of that size, you probably discovered a new prime number without realizing it, and we’ll never know because it would take too long to figure out the answer.
