Main Question or Discussion Point
How can a novice simply generate a large number > 1010 in a few steps?
There are simple means of generating a series which, by the third step say, creates a huge number, on the order of greater than 10100. In other words, how are the significant, very big numbers created, other than pasting together some smaller numbers?By writing down a '1', followed by nine '0's, followed by a '1' ?
Not sure of what you really want, though.
f(x) = 1010 + 1How can a novice simply generate a large number > 1010 in a few steps?
As I indicated, f(x) = 10100 does it in one step.I recall one of the best such algorithms was created by a Turing-like machine. Within three steps it easily reached over 10100.
