COMMENTS

3-almost prime analog of A056809 (numbers n such that n, n+1 and n+2 are products of two primes). This sequence consists of the least of 3 consecutive 3-almost primes, or 4 or more consecutive 3-almost primes (i.e. n, n+1 and n+2 but not excluding n+3 also 3-almost prime). A067813 has some runs of up to 7 consecutive 3-almost primes (i.e. starting 211673). But there cannot be 8 consecutive 3-almost primes, as every run of 8 consecutive positive integers contains exactly one multiple of 8 = 2^3 and only 8 of all positive multiples of 8 is a 3-almost prime (i.e., all larger multiples have at least 4 prime factors, with multiplicity).

FORMULA

n, n+1 and n+2 are all elements of A014612.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 170 because 170 = 2 * 5 * 17 and 171 = 3^2 * 19 and 172 = 2^2 * 43 are all 3-almost primes.

a(2) = 244 because 244 = 2^2 * 61 and 245 = 5 * 7^2 and 246 = 2 * 3 * 41 are all 3-almost primes.

a(3) = 284 because 284 = 2^2 * 71 and 285 = 3 * 5 * 19 and 286 = 2 * 11 * 13 are all 3-almost primes.

a(4) = 428 because 428 = 2^2 * 107 and 429 = 3 * 11 * 13 and 430 = 2 * 5 * 43 are all 3-almost primes.

a(5) = 434 because 434 = 2 * 7 * 31 and 435 = 3 * 5 * 29 and 436 = 2^2 * 109 are all 3-almost primes.

a(6) = 506 because 506 = 2 * 11 * 23 and 507 = 3 * 13^2 and 508 = 2^2 * 127 all 3-almost primes.

a(7), a(8), a(9) = 602, 603, 604 because of the record-setting 5 consecutive 3-almost primes: 602 = 2 * 7 * 43; 603 = 3^2 * 67; 604 = 2^2 * 151; 605 = 5 * 11^2; 606 = 2 * 3 * 101.
