i recently watched a video on youtube and it was about Michio Kaku talking about computors using 7 atoms to solve the equation 3*15=15 and i was a bit confused in how they worked especially the fact of dosen't the uncertainty principle come into play.

if you know anything please tell me

Hopefully that ("3*15=15") is a typo or else the quantum computer has a quantum bug.

Supposedly quantum computers will be able to factor numbers quickly, but since quantum computers have only recently been developed they tend to only be able to factor small numbers, like 15... which factors to 5*3 by the way.

Try googling quantum computing for more info.

3*15 = 45 not 15.
