 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS This sequence is infinite because the numbers 3, 33, 333, ... generate the decimal form 3. The correspondant primes of this sequence such that : {3, 37, 3, 3, 271, 11, 4649, 41, 333667, 3} are included in the sequence A178505. The Maple program below is very slow for the numbers > 3333.

LINKS EXAMPLE 27 is in the sequence because 1/27 = 0.037 037 ... and 37 is prime. 2997 is in the sequence because 1/2997 = 0.000333667 000333667 ... and 333667 is prime.
