List of Mersenne Primes and Perfect Numbers

In the following Table, the values of the exponent n, the values of or the number of digits in the Mersenne primes for all the 44 ones are given.

The values of or the number of digits in the Perfect Numbers are given for the first 10 numbers and the 44th. For the remaining, you may consider the number of digits to be nearly equal to double that of Mersenne Primes.

S.No. n Mersenne Prime = (2n - 1) Perfect Number = 2(n - 1)(2n - 1) 1 2 3 6 2 3 7 28 3 5 31 496 4 7 127 8128 5 13 8191 33550336 6 17 131071 8589869056 7 19 524287 137438691328 8 31 2147483647 2305843008139952128 9 61 Has 19 digits Has 37 digits 10 89 Has 27 digits Has 54 digits 11 107 Has 33 digits

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
