EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2, itself a prime;

a(2) = 2+3 = 5, itself a prime;

a(3) = 2+3*5 = 17, itself a prime;

a(4) = 2+3*5+7 = 24;

a(5) = 2+3*5+7*11 = 94;

a(15) = 2+3*5+7*11+13*17+19*23+29*31+37*41+43*47 = 5189, prime;

a(31) =

2+3*5+7*11+13*17+19*23+29*31+37*41+43*47+53*59+61*67+71*73+79*83+89*97+101*103+107*109+113*127 = 69193, which is prime.
