COMMENTS

A "prime quadruplet" is a set of four primes {p, p+2, p+6, p+8}.
a(1) = 0 rather than 1 because the quadruple {2,3,5,7} does not have the official form.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 2 because there are two prime quadruplets with largest member less than 10^2, namely {5, 7, 11, 13} and {11, 13, 17, 19}.
a(3) = 5 because, in addition to the prime quadruplets mentioned above, below 10^3 we also have {101, 103, 107, 109}, {191, 193, 197, 199} and {821, 823, 827, 829}.
