# Provisional 47th Mersenne prime M43112609 supports Collatz conjecture

On August 7th, 2017 our “3007 Collatz Tester for Mersenne Primes” (the improved version of “3000 Collatz Tester”) tested the provisional 47th Mersenne prime M43112609 for being in agreement with Collatz conjecture and supported it.

M43112609 required 580260946 steps to get from 3.16*1012978188 to 1. In the process the sequence took 86225217 first steps to expand by 7.96*107591753 times.

Full statistics for M43112609 Collatz sequence is presented below.
