EXAMPLE

The 15th prime is 47 and the 16th prime is 53. So we will consider the integers 47,48,49,50,51,52,53. Now, 1 divides each of these 6 integers. 2 divides 48, 50 and 52. 3 divides 48 and 51. 4 divides 48 and 52. 5 divides 50. 6 divides 48. 7 divides 49. 8 divides 48. But 9 does not divide any integer that is between 47 and 53. So a(15)=9, since 9 is the smallest positive integer that does not divide any integer between 47 and 53.
