Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(A009996(n)) = A009996(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 31 2007

If we define "sortable primes" as prime numbers that remain prime when their digits are sorted in decreasing order, then all absolute primes (A003459) are sortable primes but not all sortable primes are absolute primes. For example, 113 is both sortable and absolute, and 313 is sortable but not absolute since its digits can be permuted to 133 = 7 * 19. - Alonso del Arte, Oct 05 2013

EXAMPLE

a(19) = 91 because the digits of 19 being 1 and 9, arranged in decreasing order they are 9 and 1.

a(20) = 20 because the digits are already in decreasing order.
