Mersenne factorization by (nxy+x+y)
Let Mersenne number 2^{n} 1 if 2^{n} 1 composite 2^{n} 1 = n^{2}xy + (x+y)n + 1 so 2^{n} /n = (n^{2}xy + (x+y)n) /n = nxy+x+y Finding the x and y we can factor the number into a product (nx)+1 and (ny)+1 example 2^{11}1 = 2047 (20471) /2= 186 186 = nxy+x+y = 11* 8*2 + 8+2 X= 8 Y=2 and 2047 = (88+1)*(22+1) Difficulty and complexity (nxy+x+y) like a Diophantine equation Are there any solutions? sory for my english

Obvious mistakes
I would like to point out a few mistakes.
1. (2^n) is never divisible by (n), (2^n2) is divisible by (n), when (n) is prime (btw, it is because of Little Fermat theorem) 2. (20471) /2= 186; you probably meant (20471)/11 = 186. Apart from these typos, I guess I will leave the topic for other guys.

Please demonstrate the power of this method on a tiny number 2^12771.
it is composite. Show us.

The difficulty is the same as the difficulty of (Trial division) But it may help in some cases If someone found a solution to the equation c=nxy+x+y Last fiddled with by baih on 20200821 at 01:17

The problem is you need bruteforce (trying different integers for a solution) and the combinations are astronomically large. You might have some fun with WolframAlpha: https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?...er+the+integer https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?...er+the+integer Good luck, try expanding the concept. You might get something interesting or at worst expand your thinkingpower in the process.
