Aristippus and his followers seized upon this, and made it the prime factor in existence, denying to virtue any intrinsic value.

As has been stated, Abraham Sharp's table contains 61-decimal 10 b= log 24 = - log (1-160) d =10g 49 = - log (1-160) 17253 8 35 62 21868 Briggian logarithms of primes up to I ioo, so that the logarithms of all composite numbers whose greatest prime factor does not exceed this number may be found by simple addition; and Wolfram's table gives 48-decimal hyperbolic logarithms of primes up to 10,009.

Multiplying by 50, we have 50X43,867=2,193,350, and on looking in Burckhardt's Table des diviseurs for a number near to this which shall have no prime factor greater than 10,009, it appears that 2,193,349 = 23 X 47 X 2029; thus 43,867= Au (23X47X2029 -{-1), and therefore log e 43,867 = log e 23+loge 47+logy 2029 - log e 50 +2,193,349 2 (2,193,349) 2 + (2,193,349)3 &c. The first term of the series in the second line is whence, taking out the logarithms from Wolfram's table, log e 43, 86 7 = Io 68891 76079 60568 10191 3661.

It would be difficult even to prove any ground of affinity among them beyond a desposition to take sense as a prime factor in the account of subjective experience: their common interest in physical science was shared equally by rationalist thinkers of the Cartesian school, and was indeed begotten of the time.

Regardless of a man's age, fitness is still the prime factor when considering if a speedo is the right swimwear choice.
