Abstract: Since the time of Chebyshev [4] there has been interest in the magnitude of the smallest integer *x* with , where denotes the number of positive primes and . The authors have recently reached this threshold with the discovery that . This paper includes a detailed numerical and graphical description of values of in the vicinity of this long sought number.
