COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (650*10^n + 43)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 7 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 2 followed by digit 7 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 1785 are certified primes. For larger numbers see P. De Geest, PDP Reference Table.

FORMULA

a(n) = A082711(n) - 2.

EXAMPLE

72227 is prime, hence 3 is a term.
