for example:

In our case 5# is the most expensive operation because it requires a primality test if it is to be generalized, however we do not need a general application in the case of 5,5's so we can compute the total and substitute the complicated math with the solution.

5#=2*3*5

becomes

5#=30

this substitution,

5#=30

Is inexpensive, because you are actually just referencing the answer.

In programming terms you would add 5#=30 to a variable rather than compute the answer every single time.
