Because of that, most of the largest prime numbers yet discovered are Mersenne primes, including the largest currently known prime number, 2 77,232,917 - 1.

Exponent fail.

Put that in the bank at 1.25% interest and you are earning $9000 a month before taxes. Not "look how rich I am" money but certainly enough that you could quit your job.

It has a few too many divisors to write out here - 33 proper divisors in total

There's just no way to cram that many numbers onto a webpage. Way too many.
8,589,869,056 has 34 factors: 1; 2; 4; 8; 16; 32; 64; 128; 256; 512; 1,024; 2,048; 4,096; 8,192; 16,384; 32,768; 65,536; 131,071; 262,142; 524,284; 1,048,568; 2,097,136; 4,194,272; 8,388,544; 16,777,088; 33,554,176; 67,108,352; 134,216,704; 268,433,408; 536,866,816; 1,073,733,632; 2,147,467,264; 4,294,934,528 and 8,589,869,056, out of which 2 prime factors: 2 and 131,071.

And Google stock is down 5%.

The sad thing about this is that someone said they should do a stock buyback of around $8.5 billion, and they had to slush around $89 million to make a joke. Their slush money is astronomical. It's slightly more than the amount that my state underfunds their college scholarship program.

But let's not kid ourselves. The reality is that someone wanted to do a $8 billion buyback, and the slush fund is $589 million.

I thought the answer was 5318008.
