There is something going through my mind recently.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is it possible to reduce any number to the following form:

x^n +y , and -x+1<y<x-1?? x isn't necessarily prime

or better something like this x^n +y where y=+1 or -1

I tried many numbers, so far I can't see a contradiction to these 2 rules I stated, or maybe there is one, but can't really see it.

I want to see if it's possible to reduce a very very big number, to a simpler form, like the 2 i stated above.

example:(I don't know if this is correct)

1...million zero...1

it should be reduced to this 1000^1000 +1
