    Where did you get those numbers from? And it's not a prime number.

    are you actually serious about solving that....????

    I use some algorithms online

    I guess you're right: this website is not a serious place. :)

    Your algorithms are wrong because the number ends in 7, yet you say that it's divisible by 2. :P

    actually this is a nyc place but that no. is a bit too large to solve...

    oh yea......so it should be only itself...

    This number has only two factors.

    yes.....got it

    then they have to be 1 and itself and hence its prime...

    I already said that the number is not prime!

    then how can it have ONLY 2 factors.....1 and itself have to be compulsory factors....

    With two factors, I obviously meant to state proper ones (and excluding 1).

    Otherwise, the problem would've been trivial, no? ;P

    with such a LARGE no. the problem can never be a trivial one.....

    I said that the problem would have been trivial if it had been a prime.

    I wonder if you wrote a program.

    so, how do we 'solve' this? o.O

    i'm going to write a program to solve this :) and yes, should be fun :D

    Not just any program, we need a very fast prime factorization algorithm is required. If you are very confident about your algorithm , you may consider testing it here:www.spoj.pl/problems/FACT2/
