```Here's a faster computation, with factor counts:

s = 1 + x;
Do[s += Sum[x^i, {i, 2^(n - 1) + 1, 2^n}];
Print[f = Factor[s, Modulus -> 2]];
{n, 0, 5}]

As for the output -- why were you using ToString in the first place?
You're seeing exponents on one line and the x's on the next, but
eventually the lines get too long, so you see (for instance) three lines
of exponents, then three lines of x's.  The result of ToString is a
single String, but with "\n" in the middle of it, exponents at the
beginning, etc.

UGLY.  So... again... why use ToString?

I put in the following Mathematica code: Do[s = Sum[x^i, {i, 0, 2^n}];
Print[ ToString[ Factor[ s, Modulus -> 2]]], {n, 1, 10}]

The output was fairly straight forward until n=6 and beyond. What I am
seeing is:

"          2    3    4        4    5    6    7    8    12        2
5    6    7    10    12        2    3    4    6    8    9   \
10    12            3    5    6    7    9    11    12            2
3    4    5    6    7    8    9    10    11    12\n(1 + x \
+ x  + x  + x ) (1 + x  + x  + x  + x  + x  + x  ) (1 + x  + x  + x  +
x  + x   + x  ) (1 + x  + x  + x  + x  + x  + x  + x   + x \
) (1 + x + x  + x  + x  + x  + x  + x   + x  ) (1 + x + x  + x  + x  +
x  + x  + x  + x  + x  + x   + x   + x  )"

What is the deal here?

Also what is the easiest way to count the number of factors?

Thank you for any assistance in advance.

Sincerely yours,

Robert G. Wilson, V
