EXAMPLE

a(2) = 7 is the first prime p such that 5+p is divisible by 3.

a(3) = 3 is the first prime p such that 7+p is divisible by 5.

a(4) = 11 is the first prime p such that 3+p is divisible by 7.

MAPLE

q:= 3: p:= 5: R:= 3, 5:

for i from 2 to 50 do

  t:= (-p) mod q;

  while not isprime(t) do t:= t+q od;

  q:= p; p:= t; R:= R, p;
