COMMENTS

Not every three successive primes have an integer average. The integer averages are in the sequence.
Not all of these 3averages are prime: the prime 3averages are in A006562 (balanced primes). There are surprisingly many prime 3averages: among the first 10000 terms of the sequence there are 2417 primes. Indices i(n) of first prime in sequence of three primes with integer average are in A075541, for prime 3averages i(n) are in A064113. Interprimes (saverages with s=2) are all composite, see A024675.

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/3) (p(i)+p(i+1)+p(i+2)), for some i(n).


EXAMPLE

a(1) = 5 = (1/3)(3+5+7), first integer average of three successive primes; next is: a(2) = 53 = (1/3)(47 + 53 + 59); up to n=8 all terms are prime; while a(9) = 511 = (1/3)( 503 + 509 + 521) is the first nonprime 3average: 511=7*73.


MAPLE

N:= 10^4: # to get all terms using primes <= N
Primes:= select(isprime, [2, seq(2*i+1, i=1..(N1)/2)]):
select(type, (Primes[1..3] + Primes[2..2] + Primes[3..1])/3, integer); # Robert Israel, Sep 01 2015
