COMMENTS

Question, Is every base necessary to convert the natural numbers into primes?

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..48.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2 because two = 11 in unary (A000042) and its reversal 11 = 2. a(2) = 3 because three = 11 in base 2 (A007088) and its reversal 11 in base 2 = 3. a(3) = 15 because fifteen = 120 in base 3 (A007089) and its reversal 21 in base 3 = 7. a(4) = 8 -> 2. a(7) = 119 because 119 base 7 = 230 in base 7 (A007093) and its reversal 32 base 7 = 161.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Block[{b = 2}, While[b < n && !PrimeQ[ FromDigits[ Reverse[ IntegerDigits[n, b]], b]], b++ ]; If[b != n, b, 0]]; a = Table[0, {70}]; Do[b = f[n]; If[b < 76 && a[[b]] == 0, a[[b]] = n], {n, 2, 133000}]
