Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A168069 a(n) is the index k of the smallest k-th prime p(k) with f(k,n):=(p(k) + p(k+1))/n an integer (n = 1,2,3,...) 1
1, 2, 3, 2, 1, 3, 8, 2, 4, 6, 13, 3, 9, 8, 6, 16, 11, 4, 21, 10, 8, 13, 19, 5, 14, 9, 22, 16, 69, 6, 24, 18, 25, 11, 7, 29, 21, 12, 17 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

(1) EVERY natural k appears in the sequence, some more than once

(2) Theoretical interest for cases (I) a(n) < n, (II) a(n) = n, (I) a(n) > n

(3) Note cases n=1, 3, 16, ... with a(n) = n

EXAMPLE

(1) p(1)+p(2)=2+3=1 x 5 gives a(1)=a(5)=1

(2) p(3)+p(4)=5+7=2^2 x 3 gives a(3)=a(6)=a(12)=3, but a(2)=2 < 3, because p(2)+p(2)=2 x 2^2

(3) p(16)+p(17)=53+59=2^4 x 7=16 x 7 gives a(16)=16

(4) p(69)+p(70)=347+349=2^3 x 3 x 29 gives a(29)=69
