COMMENTS

k! + p is composite for k >= p since p divides k! for k >= p.
The first 10^6 terms are nonzero. Remarkably, the number 7426189+m! is composite for all m <= 1793. [From T. D. Noe, Mar 02 2010]
Apparently it is not known whether a(n) is ever zero.  N. J. A. Sloane, Aug 11 2011

EXAMPLE

For n = 4, 3!+7 = 13, 4!+7=31, 5!+7=127 and 6!+7 = 727 are the 4 primes in n!+7


MAPLE

for i from 2 to 50 do ctr := 0: for j from 2 to ithprime(i)1 do if isprime(j!+ithprime(i))=true then ctr := ctr+1 fi od; print(ctr); od;


PROG

(PARI) nfactppct(n) = { forprime(p=1, n, c=0; for(x=0, n, y=x!+p; if(isprime(y), c++) ); print1(c", ") ) }  Cino Hilliard, Apr 15 2004
