%N Primes of the form k(k+1)/2-2 (i.e., two less than triangular numbers).

%C Equal to primes of the form (k^2-17)/8. Also equal to primes p such that 8*p+17 is a square. - _Chai Wah Wu_, Jul 14 2014

%H Chai Wah Wu, <a href="/A124199/b124199.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..2000</a>.

%e The (first five triangular numbers)-2 are: -1,1,4,8,13. So a(1)=13 is the first prime of this form.

%t Pick[ #1, PrimeQ[ #1]]&[((1/2)*#1*(#1 + 1) - 2 & ) /@ Range[180]]
