 Pro The first round is for acceptance. The second round I will post a positive whole number. The challenge: Post 2 positive whole numbers that when multiplied together equal the number I posted in the second round. Neither of those numbers can be the number 1. The first to complete the challenge wins. I can't complete the challenge the same round I post the number so my opponent gets the first chance to complete the challenge. If nobody is able to complete the challenge, my opponent wins.Report this Argument Con I accept.Report this Argument Pro number: 2411667898559004051960186229162734322671742088617359089845931334671Report this Argument Con First number: 8.3125544e+46 Second number: 29012356192035162350Report this Argument Pro My opponent's numbers don't meet the challenge. You can use this http://web2.0calc.com... to check if his two numbers work, which they don't. These numbers do complete the challenge: 937748634966726163746318950483273, 2571763699388990842068052197183127 Again you can use this http://web2.0calc.com... to verify my numbers do work. Just copy past the 2 numbers in with * in between and press the equals button on the calculator. You will see the result is the number I posted for the challenge. I am the first to complete the challenge. Vote for me.Report this Argument Con Yes, I essentially have no justification here, so I can't really ask you to vote for me except out of a sense of dadaism.Report this Argument

Yes indeed you are correct. Actually, this calculator is very nice and I wish I had known about it before. Anyway, good challenge.

Yes I got the prime numbers first and multiplied them together. That is really the only known way to answer this type of question in a reasonable amount of time.

As for why Con might have got it wrong. Most online and scientific calculators lose accuracy at such large number values and should not be relied on. I book marked Pros suggest calculator for this reason.

i"m curious; did PRO know the numbers before hand?

Designing a number made by two large prime numbers is more difficult than simply looking up two extremely large primes and multiplying them together.

No standard base divisibility here. Arduous, But intriguing Prime numbers problem.

I think Cons answer must be incorrect.... his numbers both end in 0.
