Table of n, a(n) for n=1..52.

EXAMPLE

For n=1, prime(n)=2, and the ratios generated are (3-2)/1=1 (not prime), (5-2)/1=3 (prime, first), (7-2)/1=5 (prime, second), (11-2)/1=9 (not prime) and (13-2)/1=11 (prime, third and selected a(1)).

MAPLE

A089487 := proc(n) local ct, q, p ;

        ct := 0 ; q := ithprime(n) ; p := nextprime(q) ;

        while true do

                while true do

                        if type( (p-q)/(q-1), 'integer') then if isprime( (p-q)/(q-1)) then break;  end if;

                        end if;

                        p := nextprime(p) ;

                end do:

                ct := ct+1 ;

                if ct = 3 then return (p-q)/(q-1); end if;

                p := nextprime(p) ;

        end do:

PROG

(PARI) r is the occurrence desired 1=first, 2=second etc. diff2sqp2(n, r) = { forprime(q=3, n, c=0; forprime(p=q+1, n, y=(p-q)/(q-1); if(y==floor(y), if(isprime(y), c++; if(c==r, print1(y", "); break)) ) ) ) }
