Table of n, a(n) for n=1..40.

FORMULA

a(n)=m: sum(1/prime(i), i=n,n+m-1))>1, while sum(1/prime(i), i=n,n+m-2))<1.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=3 because 1/2+1/3+1/5=31/30 (3 terms), while 1/2+1/3<1,

a(2)=9 because 1/3+1/5+1/7+1/11+1/13+1/17+1/19+1/23+1/29 =3343015913/3234846615 (9 terms), while 1/3+...+1/23<1,

a(3)=27 because 1/p(3)+...1/p(29)>1 (27 terms) while 1/p(3)+...1/p(28)<1.

MATHEMATICA

ss={}; Do[s=1/Prime[n]; k=1; While[s<1, k++; s+=1/Prime[n+k-1]]; AppendTo[ss, k], {n, 1, 30}]
