Conjecture: (i) Each positive rational number r can be written as m/n with m and n in the set {k>0: prime(k)+2, prime(k)+6 and prime(k)+8 are all prime}.

(ii)  Any positive rational number r can be written as m/n with m and n in the set {k>0: prime(k)+4, prime(k)+6 and prime(k)+10 are all prime}.

For example, 3/4 = 20723892/27631856, and prime(20723892)+2 = 387875561+2 = 387875563,  prime(20723892)+6 = 387875567, prime(20723892)+8 = 387875569, prime(27631856)+2 = 525608591+2 =525608593, prime(27631856)+6 = 525608597,  prime(27631856)+8 = 525608599 are all prime.  Also, 3/4 = 599478/799304, and prime(599478)+4 = 8951857+4 = 8951861, prime(599478)+6 = 8951863, prime(599478)+10 = 8951867, prime(799304)+4 = 12183943+4 = 12183947, prime(799304)+6 = 12183949, prime(799304)+10 = 12183953 are all prime.

Part (i) of the conjecture implies that there are infinitely many primes p with p+2, p+6 and p+8 all prime, while part (ii) implies that there are infinitely many primes p with p+4, p+6 and p+10 all prime.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 3 since 3*1 = 3, and prime(3)+2 = 5+2 =7, prime(3)+6 = 11 and prime(3)+8 = 13 are all prime.

a(2) = 358712 since prime(358712)+2 = 5158031+2 = 5158033, prime(358712)+6 = 5158037, prime(358712)+8 = 5158039, prime(358712*2)+2 = 10852601+2 = 10852603, prime(358712*2)+6 = 10852607 and prime(358712*2)+8 = 10852609 are all prime.
