The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.



Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A141097 Number of unordered pairs of coprime composite numbers that sum to 2n. 6

%N Number of unordered pairs of coprime composite numbers that sum to 2n.

%C See A141095 for pairs of coprime nonprime numbers. It appears that a(n) > 0 except for the 43 values of 2n given in A141098. Roberts says that A. M. Vaidya proved that a(n) > 0 for all sufficiently large n.
