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

Numbers n such that (740*10^n - 11)/9 is prime.

Numbers n such that digit 8 followed by n >= 0 occurrences of digit 2 followed by digit 1 is prime.

Numbers corresponding to terms <= 176 are certified primes.

a(9) > 10^5. - Robert Price, Oct 13 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A103074(n+1) - 1. - Herman Jamke (hermanjamke(AT)fastmail.fm), Jan 01 2008

EXAMPLE

822221 is prime, hence 4 is a term.
