%N a(n) = |{0 < k < n: p = k + phi(n-k) and 2*(n-p) + 1 are both prime}|, where phi(.) is Euler's totient function.

%C Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 2.

%C Clearly, this implies Lemoine's conjecture which states that any odd number 2*n + 1 > 5 can be written as 2*p + q with p and q both prime.

%C See also A234808 for a similar conjecture.

%H Zhi-Wei Sun, <a href="/A234809/b234809.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000</a>

%e a(5) = 1 since 1 + phi(4) = 3 and 2*(5-3) + 1 = 5 are both prime.

%e a(16) = 1 since 7 + phi(9) = 13 and 2*(16-13) + 1 = 7 are both prime.

%e a(41) = 1 since 7 +phi(34) = 23 and 2*(41-23) + 1 = 37 are both prime.

%e a(156) = 1 since 131 + phi(25) = 151 and 2*(156-151) + 1 = 11 are both prime.
