# 40th Mersenne prime M20996011 supports Collatz conjecture

On July 20th, 2017 our “3007 Collatz Tester for Mersenne Primes” (the improved version of “3000 Collatz Tester”) tested the 40th Mersenne prime M20996011 for being in agreement with Collatz conjecture and supported it.

M20996011 required 282515044 steps to get from 1.25*106320429 to 1. In the process the sequence took 41992021 first steps to expand by 2.06*103697214 times.

Full statistics for M20996011 Collatz sequence is presented below.
