COMMENTS

We note that a(n) > 1 for all n = 1..10^7 except for n = 394.
Conjecture: For each k = 2,3,6,7,8,9 all the rational numbers (prime(p)+k)/(p+k) with p prime are pairwise distinct.
We have verified that all the numbers (prime(p)+2)/(p+2) with p prime and p < 10^7 are indeed pairwise distinct. Also, for each k = 3,6,7,8,9 we have verified that all the numbers (prime(p)+k)/(p+k) with p prime and p < 3*10^6 are indeed pairwise distinct.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 4 since (prime(prime(1))+2)/(prime(1)+2) = (prime(2)+2)/(2+2) = (3+2)/(2+2) = 5/4.
a(394) = 1 since (prime(prime(394))+2)/(prime(394)+2) = (prime(2707)+2)/(2707+2) = (24379+2)/(2707+2) = 24381/2709 = 9.
