COMMENTS

The associated (x*n+1)*(y*n+1) for a solution is a semiprime, so the (x*n+1)*(y*n+1)-2 are actually Chen primes.

If more than one pair exists for a given n, priority is given to minimize x, the smaller prime.

EXAMPLE

For n=3, (x,y)=(2,4), 2*3+1=7 is prime, 4*3+1=13 is prime, and 7*13-2=89 is a Chen prime.
