COMMENTS

Positions of zeros in A119688 (n!! mod (n+1)).

All terms are even (for n odd, n!! is odd and not divisible by even (n+1))

Apparently all integers of form 8+6k, k >= 1, are in the sequence.

Exactly all even numbers n >= 14 with composite n+1 are in this sequence. - Alois P. Heinz, Feb 15 2011

EXAMPLE

14!! = 14*12*10*8*6*4*2 = 645120 = 43008*15, so 14 is in the sequence.

16!! = 16*14*12*10*8*6*4*2 = 10321920 is not divisible by 17, so 16 is not in the sequence.

20!! = 20*18*16*14*12*10*8*6*4*2 = 3715891200 = 176947200*21, so 20 is in the sequence.
