COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (890*10^n - 71)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 9 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 8 followed by digit 1 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 413 are certified primes.

Certified primality of terms corresponding to 1191 and 1259 with Primo. - Ryan Propper, Jun 20 2005

FORMULA

a(n) = A103107(n) - 1.

EXAMPLE

9888881 is prime, hence 5 is a term.

PROG

(PARI) a=91; for(n=0, 1500, if(isprime(a), print1(n, ", ")); a=10*a+71)

(PARI) for(n=0, 1500, if(isprime((890*10^n-71)/9), print1(n, ", ")))
