### Re: Mathematical limits for computer programs

It's pretty easy to show that a turing machine can prove anything a human can prove with a rigorous proof: Take a proposition P which you are trying to prove. Any proof of P can be represented of a number of logical statements, P1,P2,P3,P4...Pn such that for all k, 0<k<N, Pk directly implies Pk+1. A...

Hmmm I feel like there shouldn't be any after {3,5} and {5,7}

well hmmm
The first has to end in 9 so that the first digit can change, so it has to be 999999.. which is divisible by 9, so there are none after the trivial ones?
