Possible minor mistake in the method page

So I was reading the method page and found something strange. It says “In order to achieve this goal we need to analyse the behavior of every single 5-state Turing machine. We quickly run into a problem: there are roughly 167 trillion 5-state Turing machines (21^10 to be exact).”

Notice it says 167 trillion and then 21^10. 21^10 is 16679880978201. Which is 16 trillion 679 billion 880 million 978 thousand 201 not 167 trillion. It’s a contradiction, what gives?

Well caught, thank you very much!

It is indeed a mistake of mine and I have just corrected it.

Thank you for letting us know! If you are interested, we also have a quite active discord server.


It says 167 trillion again.
