# 3370501

This number is a prime.

On the first page of his algebraic number theory text, K. B. Stolarsky said that to solve *y*^2 + 999 = *x*^3 in positive integers is a problem one which "a fool can ask, but a thousand wise men cannot answer." There are just six solutions and 3370501 is the largest of the *y* values. [Beedassy]
