the highest number is 3. as in 3.14 3 is a whole number. [adurr]

257,885,161 -1 as of 2013. New primes are being calculated all the time, so this will change as new and larger ones are discovered. Also, note that there are infinitely many primes (proved by Euclid around 300 BCE), so there won't ever be a single "highest" prime, only the highest one known.

well there is no answer for that it is really just a long series of numbers also they just keep going so like right now it could be the 135845411581154841418614 for all i know but then it will be higher than that now so it is really just a series of numbers!!

There is NO number with the most number of factors.

On Jan. 25, 2013 the largest known prime number, 257,885,161-1, was discovered on Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS) volunteer Curtis Cooper's computer. The new prime number, 2 multiplied by itself 57,885,161 times, less one, has 17,425,170 digits.

It doesn't make much sense to talk about the "highest number", or about the "highest number known to man", since there are infinitely many numbers. In the case of a finite number, you can always add one to get a higher number. In the case of an infinite number, you can always raise 2 to the power of this infinite number to get a higher infinity.
