%C (+/-) distance from 5^n to the nearest semiprime.

%C a(0)=3 and a(1)=-1 are the only terms == 3 (mod 4), as 5^n + 3 is divisible by 4. - _Robert Israel_, May 03 2018

%F a(n) = Integer k such that 5^n + k = A117429(n). a(n) = A117429(n) - 5^n. a(n) = Min{k such that A001358(i) + k = 5^n}.

%e a(0) = 3 because 5^0 + 3 = 4 = A001358(1) and no semiprime is closer to 5^0.

%e a(1) = -1 because 5^1 - 1 = 4 = A001358(1) and no semiprime is closer to 5^1.

%e a(2) = 0 because 5^2 + 0 = 25 = A001358(9), no semiprime is closer to 5^2 [this is the only 0 element].

%e a(3) = -2 because 5^3 - 2 = 123 = 3 * 41 = A001358(42), no semiprime is closer.

%e a(4) = 1 because 5^4 + 1 = 626 = 2 * 313, no semiprime is closer.

%e a(5) = 2 because 5^5 + 2 = 3127 = 53 * 59, no semiprime is closer.
