Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Numbers n such that (890*10^n - 71)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 9 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 8 followed by digit 1 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 413 are certified primes.

Certified primality of terms corresponding to 1191 and 1259 with Primo. - Ryan Propper, Jun 20 2005
