 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Primes of the form 2^n*(n+1)!+1. a(12) = 2^118*119!+1, a(13) = 2^142*143!+1. I conjecture that a(13) is the last prime number of this form. - Jorge Coveiro, Apr 01 2004 Conjecture that a(13) is the last prime of this form is false:   a(14) = 2^2789*2780!+1 is prime   a(15) = 2^3142*3143!+1 is prime   a(16) = 2^3557*3558!+1 is prime   a(17) = 2^3686*3687!+1 is prime   a(18) = 2^4190*4191!+1 is prime   a(19) = 2^7328*7329!+1 is prime   See A248879. - Robert Price, Mar 10 2015 LINKS FORMULA Starting with 4, multiply even composites until the product plus 1 equals a prime. EXAMPLE a(1) = 5 = 2*2!+1 a(2) = 193 = 2^3*4!+1 a(3) = 23041 = 2^5*6!+1 a(4) = 92897281 = 2^8*9!+1 a(5) = 980995276801 = 2^11*12!+1 a(6) = 23310331287699456001 = 2^16*17!+1 a(11) = 2^87*88!+1 is too large to include.
