I have been trying to figure this out. I have just started PrimeGrid, and so far I have 1 factor found. Why can I not see the factor? Does it mean I found a prime? How come some people know what primes they find, and how do you do that? Thanks!

Welcome Brice,

it's quite common question about factors vs primes.
See recent post like "What does Factors found: 4 (avg. 4/task") mean? or Can I see my factors? How?
