%N Numbers n such that 5*10^n + 3*R_n is prime, where R_n = 11...1 is the repunit (A002275) of length n.

%C Also numbers n such that (16*10^n-1)/3 is prime.

%C 5*10^a(n)+3*(10^a(n)-1)/9 is a solution for part (b) of questions of puzzle 244 from www.primepuzzles.net. If a(n) is greater than 5812 then a(n) is an example that is asked for in this question. - _Farideh Firoozbakht_, Dec 02 2003
