@Snowman can you elaborate? I am completely ignorant in this area... as is, it seems, almost everybody

Wow, if the answer isn't in here I don't know where it would be. Thanks.. // I was kind of hoping to be able to point to some specific research as to why these numbers are special, but this suffices. 9301 is a product of two primes (71x131), 49297 is a prime -- instinctually I feel like that must be relevant. 233280 is not prime -- it equals 2x2x2x2x2x2x3x3x3x3x3x3x5 (or 2^6 * 3^5 * 5)
