Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Also numbers k such that (16*10^k - 1)/3 is prime.

5*10^a(n) + 3*(10^a(n) - 1)/9 is a solution for part (b) of questions of puzzle 244 from www.primepuzzles.net. If a(n) is greater than 5812 then a(n) is an example that is asked for in this question. - Farideh Firoozbakht, Dec 02 2003
