Triangular(p) = p*(p+1)/2.
Table of n, a(n) for n=1..5.
a(2) = 3 because 3 is the least prime such that the following are two primes:
p1 = 3 * 4 / 2 + 1 = 7.
p2 = 7 * 8 / 2 + 1 = 29.
a(3) = 43 because 43 is the least prime such that the following 3 numbers are prime:
p1 = 43 * 44 / 2 + 1 = 947.
p2 = 947 * 948 / 2 + 1 = 448879.
p3 = 448879 * 448880 / 2 + 1 = 100746402761.
