Our second result has arrived! The composite cofactor of 6,317+ was the product of 68-digit and 158-digit prime numbers:

68-digit prime factor:
11945361088850933777390788537647098376873971990473200125789018538899

158-digit prime factor:
13346683767756739751221171391453612510290695982921903538908296073270577730965354291094433347373531609778283156038003000968646967209671655512834647619164750607

This one required 6 square root runs, a remarkably unlucky number, to find the factors. The factors will be reported to the Cunningham project, and will be recorded on Page 112. We should have another factor tomorrow. Thanks for all of your contributions, and let's keep going!
