There are certain questions that ask about finding an object with a certain property, usually some large number. Now, to me, it is on the edge of what this site is about, as the question is not really about understanding the math, but rather asking for help with computation (although sometimes an answer can be given by purely mathematical reasoning). Just to give a few examples:
- Are there primes $p=47\cdot 2^n+1$?
- Is $k=553276187$ the smallest solution?
Do we have some recommended approach to these types of questions? I was thinking if perhaps there is a better platform for these elsewhere. However, they do not even seem to fit sites like Art of the Problem Solving (AoPS) forums. This is a reason I personally do not downvote these, as I do not know where else these should be asked. However, at least by the downvotes it seems lots of users have an opposite opinion.
If these types of questions are worth keeping on this site, should we at least have some tags to recognize these? Closest thing I found related is [big-numbers] and [examples-counterexamples], not sure if either of them fits.
