No, but I am not very familiar with it

### Re: Miller-Rabin

Did you program it?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

### Re: Miller-Rabin

I just copied the program from rosettacode

That is fine, did it work?

### Re: Miller-Rabin

Yes, thats how I did the problem in the joke thread.

Does it have a parameter k?

### Re: Miller-Rabin

I set it to 7, why?

The k parameter determines how sure you are that you have found a prime.

### Re: Miller-Rabin

Once it gave true in the Miller-Rabin, I sent it to the Real Prime Test.

See you later, I have to go
