 A074871 Start with n and repeatedly apply the map k -> T(k) = A053837(k) + A171765(k); a(n) is the number of steps (at least one) until a prime is reached, or 0 if no prime is ever reached. 2

%e T(2)=2. So in one step we reach a prime.

%e T(3)=3 and then in one step again we reach a prime.

%e T(4)=4 and we will never reach a prime.

%e T(11)=1+2=3 and again in one step we reach a prime.

%e T(17)=7+8=15 --> T(15)=5+6=11 and then in two steps we reach a prime.

%e T(13)=3+4=7 and then 1 step......

%e T(14)=4+5=9 --> T(9)=9 --> T(9)=9........ and we will never reach a prime.
