 A Composite Determination Problem (Posted on 2006-04-23)
Determine whether or not N is a composite number, where

N = 675*2621 + 677*2610 - 1

NOTE:
A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number that has exactly two (distinct) natural number divisors, which are 1 and the prime number itself. A composite number is a positive integer which has a positive divisor other than one or itself. By definition, every integer greater than one is either a prime number or a composite number. The numbers 0 and 1 are considered to be neither prime nor composite.

Never mind.  My brain got a little ahead of itself there.  Obviously, it is not 677 to a power, but rather 677 times an even number, which completely dismantles my last post.  Oh well...(I thought that seemed rather simple)  :)
