I'd be interested in seeing how these factors were found. My factoring program found 3597751 and 28707251, but got only as far as 56531057 in trial divisors of the remaining 76379660648003781777292087596491819833721077266601195001, which is nowhere near the needed 4032808198751 for the next prime divisor.

But, BTW, the final "prime" factor listed, 4687045214139234043375683501, also fails the prime test, the P value being 60895742403057891673741119:

   10   N=4687045214139234043375683501
   20   for Dvsr=12345 to 99999
   30     if N @ Dvsr = 0 then print Dvsr:cancel for:goto *Found
   40     P=modpow(Dvsr,N-1,N)
   50     if P<>1 then print "not prime":print Dvsr:print P:cancel for:goto *Npr
   60   next
   65   print "couldn't prove"
   70   *Found
   80   *Nprime
   90   end
not prime
