comment Is there a non-literal meaning to "L'arbre est plus grand que la fleur"
@krabcakes lol there's also no need to edit apologies into your question. you're not being judged before a panel. it's just stuff to keep in mind for the future.

Oh, right you are. When I see people with 1 reputation I assume they are new. This is the first time out of perhaps 50 that it has been a false assumption. By the way, it's "would have come earlier" :)

@krabcakes Welcome to Stack Exchange! Your question here basically falls short because you didn't really look these words up in decent dictionaries. Google Translate is notoriously unreliable, unfortunately. If you use a dictionary, the sentence is easy to translate to "The tree is bigger (plus grand = "more big" = bigger) than the flower." Try to look things up before asking here; you'll get a better response.

comment Where is the mistake in my RSA by-hand calculation?
Yes, now they all give me the correct result as in Henno Brandsma's answer. I must have been using the wrong numbers somehow. I don't know what I typed in. Oh well. Thank you.

comment Exponentials in python x.**y vs math.pow(x, y)
Still investigating this, but answers here seem to be incomplete. I was doing some somewhat large cryptographic calculations, and while 4926601444670 ** 4235309647073 % 6000029000033 crashes the interpreter, pow(4926601444670 , 4235309647073, 6000029000033) is instantaneous.

comment RSA smaller number work-out-by-hand not working - I think I made a mistake
In the Key Creation step, when you wrote 616 % 2 != 0 and 616 % 3 = 0, didn't you mean to reverse those with regards to which is != and which is = ?
