Ok I wanted to see if this idea had any potential and I figured if it didn’t it would be shot down in a matter of minutes.

This is my final work on the Prime product problem.

I know it is just x^2 * y^2 = PNP^2

However the terms would just cancel out. Instead I have decided to let x^2 equal a pattern of x and PNP. So I just substituted the equation which is more complex and will not equal the right side of the equation for x^2.

In calculus where you have a complex derivative where you let du/dx equal a portion of the derivative so you can understand and simplify the manipulation of the integral. I am instead taking a more complex pattern and leaving it so x^2 does not cancel x squared. By doing this I hope it solves the pattern.

So if you could solve this polynomial equation you would solve the factorization problem.

If you couldn’t solve the polynomial? Well you could just write an algorithm that plugged in Prime numbers from smallest to largest. And because the polynomial is set up to find PNP you would get a feel for the range x was in. I mean, that this time when you try a number how far away the computed value is from PNP is significant.

So if this works it is faster than using division to factor.

But of course I await any disagreeing opinions. I now this problem gets that. But it was my final attempt before moving on to a different problem to pursue.

(((((x^2*PNP^4 + 2*PNP^2 * x^5) + x^8)/ PNP^4 ) - ((1 - x^2/(2*PNP)))) * ((PNP^2/x^2 ))) == PNP^2 Above is the pattern of x^2 * y^2 = PNP^2 It is not to be simplified yet x put and tested in that place. It is faster than division since the equation approaches PNP as the proper x is used. Smallest to largest Prime numbers are to be used. PNP = 85 x = 5 (((((x^2*PNP^4 + 2*PNP^2 * x^5) + x^8)/ PNP^4 ) - ((1 - x^2/(2*PNP)))) * ((PNP^2/x^2 ))) 85 5 4179323/578 N[4179323/578, 14] Sqrt[7230.66262975778546712802768166089965397924`14.] 85.033303062728 ((((x^2*PNP^4 + 2*PNP^2 * x^5) + x^8)/ PNP^4 ) - ((1 - x^2/(2*PNP)))) 4179323/167042 N[4179323/167042, 14] 25.019593874594 ((PNP^2/x^2)) 289 Questions to ask: Is it unique to factors of PNP or does it just give a decimal to all real numbers? Does it work for other values of PNP and x? Is it faster than factoring (recursion)?. Is it just x = x and as so not a useful pattern? Can the error be programmed? Verify then post. That is what I need to do. But I actually believe there is a pattern here. The question is does it work for all PNP and x values. I have many patterns. Some answer some of the questions. But I haven't found a polynomial I can solve after these questions have been answered. For example if this worked, I would need to solve the given equation. And this proves to be challenging. PNP = 85 x = 3 (((((x^2*PNP^4 + 2*PNP^2 * x^5) + x^8)/ PNP^4 ) - ((1 - x^2/(2*PNP)))) * ((PNP^2/x^2 ))) 85 3 847772947/130050 N[847772947/130050, 14] 6518.8231218762 Sqrt[6518.8231218762] 80.739229138481
