%N Prime numbers such that, in base 10, all their proper prefixes and suffixes represent composites.

%C A proper prefix (or suffix) of a number m is one which is neither void, nor identical to m.

%C Alternative definition: Slice the decimal expansion of the prime number a(n) in any way into two nonempty parts; then both parts represent a composite number.

%C This sequence is a subset of A254750. Each member a(n) must start with one of the digits {4,6,8,9} and end with 9.

%C Every proper prefix of each member a(n) is a member of A202260, and every proper suffix is a member of A254755.

%C These numbers are rare and tend to become rarer with increasing n, but the sequence does not seem to terminate (for example, 4*10^28 + 9 is a member).

%H Stanislav Sykora, <a href="/A254754/b254754.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..20000</a>

%e 7 is not a member because its expansion cannot be sliced in two.

%e The prime 4969 is a member because it is a prime and the slices (4, 969, 49, 69, 496, and 9) are all composites.

%o (PARI) isComposite(n) = (n>2)&&(!isprime(n));

%o slicesIntoComposites(n,b=10) = {my(k=b);if(n<b,return(0););while(n\k>0,if(!isComposite(n\k)||!isComposite(n%k),return(0););k*=b);return(1);}

%o isPrimeSlicingIntoComposites(n,b=10) = isprime(n) && slicesIntoComposites(n,b);
