COMMENTS

The meaning of "distinct" is the following: we count ordered index pairs (i,j) with k = Fibonacci(i) + prime(j), i > 1, j >= 1.

Fibonacci(1) + prime(4) = Fibonacci(2) + prime(4) = Fibonacci(4) + prime(3) = Fibonacci(5) + prime(2) = 8 are three "distinct" representations of k=8, because Fibonacci(1) = Fibonacci(2) is treated as indistinguishable, whereas Fibonacci(4) = prime(2) are distinguishable based on the ordering in the indices (ordering in the sum): k = 1+7 = 3+5 = 5+3.

EXAMPLE

15684 is the least number having eight distinct representations due to the following sums: 1 + 15683 = 5 + 15679 = 13 + 15671 = 55 + 15629 = 233 + 15451 = 377 + 15307 = 1597 + 14087 = 4181 + 11503.
