# 341

This number is a composite.

341 is the smallest pseudoprime to base two. In 1819, French mathematician Pierre Frédéric Sarrus observed that 341 divides 2³⁴¹-2.

The smallest member of the series *n*(*n* + 1 ) - 1 which, if composite, is not the product of two smaller primes in the series of the form 10*k* - 1 or 10*k* + 1. [McNamara]
