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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The prime number theorem states that the number of primes <= x is asymptotic to x/log(x).

n/log(n)=n/log_10(n) * 1/log(10)=n*log_10(e)/log_10(n)=n*A002285/log_10(n) [From Eric Desbiaux, Jun 27 2009]

Similar to floor(1/(1-x)) where x^n=1/n. - Jon Perry, Oct 29 2013
