Flawless Series? (Posted on 2003-11-29) Difficulty: 3 of 5
What are the next three numbers in this sequence? 6, 28, 496, 8128, ... ? Please explain how you determined these three numbers.

Penny: "And what exactly did I claim to be able to do ?"

You (falsely) claimed to have solved and answered the problem....

So not only did you contradict your own answer (and then sloppily try to cover it up with your "Two of the three values I gave previously were deliberately erroneous."), but you have still failed to explain how one determines these numbers (excepting citing an equation and mindlessly plugging numbers into it).

I've been told it has been amusing to others (and it most certainly amuses me...), so I'll (repeat myself and) let you face the continuing truth:

Penny... put up or shut up...
Either (1) do what you claim to be able to do... or (2) stop your ranting about what you think you can do, but aren't able to.

I suggest that you either demonstrate WHY that formula might work, or better yet, show the answer (and how you got it) without relying on Mersene primes. But, *sigh*, again [now a third time], I doubt Penny will be up to the task.
