COMMENTS

Proof that all numbers in this sequence are divisible by 3 (Zak Seidov Apr 19 2008:
if n=(3k+1), then 8n+7=8(3k+1)+7=3(5+8 k) (composite)
if n=(3k+2), then 8n+5=8(3k+2)+5=3(7+8 k) (composite),
so if we require that both 8n+5 and 8n+7 are primes, then n=3k, hence all terms in A125821 are multiples of 3. QED.
