It has been proven that there is no largest prime number. You can find a list of the largest KNOWN prime numbers here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Largest_known_prime_number

Suppose you have a number N and you want to find its largest prime factor. It is probably easiest to start at the bottom.Find the smallest prime factor, p.Find its factor pair = N/p.If the second number (= N/p) is a prime, then it is the largest prime factor.if not, replace N by N/p and go back to the top.

No. No matter how large of an example you choose, someone always can find a larger number (of any kind), because the upper range of number is infinite. If you take all the known prime numbers and multiply them together, then add 1 to the result, you will have a number that is not divisible by any of the known prime numbers. This number will either be prime or have prime factors that were not previously known. So, in this way, you can always find a new prime number or a number that is a multiple of new prime numbers. If the known prime numbers include all the prime numbers up to the largest known, the new ones must be larger.

Find them all. Pick the largest one. 2 x 2 x 5 x 5 = 100 The largest prime factor of 100 is 5.

The previous prime number is 23,456,787,559 and the next prime number is 23,456,787,593.

Numbers never end. Thus it is impossible to find the largest prime number. The largest known prime number as of 2003 is m39 = 213,466,917-1 It has 4,053,946 digits and does not fit in this box.

6859. Cube root of 9999 is 21.54, so find the largest prime number less than that (19), then cube that number. 19^3=6,859

It has not yet been discovered because numbers are infinite

All composite numbers can be expressed as unique products of prime numbers. This is accomplished by dividing the original number and its factors by prime numbers until all the factors are prime. A factor tree can help you visualize this. Example: 210 210 Divide by two. 105,2 Divide by three. 35,3,2 Divide by five. 7,5,3,2 Stop. All the factors are prime. 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210 That's the prime factorization of 210. The largest of those numbers is the largest prime factor.

No. No matter how large of an example you choose, someone always can find a larger number (of any kind), because the upper range of number is infinite. If you take all the known prime numbers and multiply them together, then add 1 to the result, you will have a number that is not divisible by any of the known prime numbers. This number will either be prime or have prime factors that were not previously known. So, in this way, you can always find a new prime number or a number that is a multiple of new prime numbers. If the known prime numbers include all the prime numbers up to the largest known, the new ones must be larger.

There is an infinite number of them, so of course there is no chart with all of them. If you google prime number, you can find list of the first 1000 or even 10000 primes. That should do it, I think
