FORMULA

a(n) = 3*A166113(n).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..8} prime(pi(A256891(n))+k)/3, where (prime)pi = A000720, prime = A000040. A similar formula is possible using the central prime A166113(n). - M. F. Hasler, Oct 28 2018

PROG

(PARI) A270305(n, p=A256891[n], N=3)=sum(i=2, N^2, p=nextprime(p+1), p)/N \\ Illustrates the second formula. Uses a precomputed array A256891, unless the smallest prime is supplied as optional 2nd argument. See also the 4x4 and 5x5 analog, A173981 and A176571, where this is useful for finding possible sets of primes, cf. A260673 and A272386. - M. F. Hasler, Oct 28 2018
