Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The first 16 terms correspond to n from 0 to 15, which makes 25*n^2 + 25*n + 47 a prime-generating polynomial (see the link).

This is a prime-generating polynomial of the form s*n^2 + s*n + p, where s=k^2 and p is prime with s and p containing at most two digits. Prime-generating polynomials of this kind arise for k=1,2,3,5,7. This is the case of k=5; it generates most primes in a row out of the prime k's listed, with 12 for k=3,7, and 14 for k=2. See also A005846 and A007635 (k=1), and A048988 (k=2).

All terms are of the form 10m+7, with their next-to-last digits being 4 or 9.
