%N Numbers n, not relatively prime to 10, such that the decimal form of the period of 1/n is prime.

%C The sequence A175545 (numbers n such that the decimal form of the period of 1/n is prime) is only concerned with numbers n such that gcd(n,10)=1. Each number n such that gcd(n,10)<>1 generates a quotient where there exist a sequence of digits which is periodic after a finite sequence of digits, for example 1/36 = .0277777.... and 7 is periodic.

%C The prime numbers corresponding to this sequence are :

%C 3, 5, 3, 7, 2, 3, 3, 3, 5, 3, 5, 37, 2, 3, 3, 7, 2, 3, 2,...

%F Union of A179192 and A175545 is A061564.

%e 1584 is in the sequence because 1/1584 = .0006313131313131313131... and 31 is prime.
