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 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Does lim q(n)/a(n+1) converge?
The Prime Number Theorem implies that the limit is 1. [Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 08 2011]

FORMULA
a(n) = pi( 3*q(n)/2 -1 ) - pi( q(n)/2 -1 ).
EXAMPLE
a(2) = 3 primes in [3,9], 9-3 = 6 = q(2) = 3*2. a(3) = 8 primes in [15,45], 45-15 = 30 = q(3) = 5*6. a(4) = 38 primes in [105,315], 315-105 = 210 = q(4) = 7*30.
