# 42nd Mersenne prime M25964951 supports Collatz conjecture

On July 25th, 2017 our “3007 Collatz Tester for Mersenne Primes” (the improved version of “3000 Collatz Tester”) tested the 42nd Mersenne prime M25964951 for being in agreement with Collatz conjecture and supported it.

M25964951 required 349304386 steps to get from 1.22*107816229 to 1. In the process the sequence took 51929901 first steps to expand by 1.64*104572201 times.

Full statistics for M25964951 Collatz sequence is presented below.
