FORMULA

If n+2 = p > 4 is prime, then a(n) = 3. Indeed, it is known that (p-2)! = 1 (mod p) for all primes p. Thus n!+2 = 1+2 = 3 (mod n+2).

If n+2 is composite and n > 2 then a(n) = 2.  There are two cases: n+2 = a*b with a < b <= n (so n! is divisible by a*b), or n+2 = a^2 with 2*a <= n (so n! is divisible by a*(2*a)). - Robert Israel, Oct 27 2014
