 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Conjecture: The triples (3,5,11), (5,11,17), (11,17,31) are the only consecutive PIP triples that cannot form a triangle. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..34. FORMULA A prime index is the numerical position of a prime number in the sequence of prime numbers. A Prime-Indexed Prime (PIP) is a prime number whose index is also prime. A Prime-Indexed Prime triangle is a triangle whose sides are Prime-Indexed Primes. EXAMPLE The first set of consecutive PIPs that produces a triangle, 17, 31 and 41, produces the 17 X 31 X 41 unit triangle whose area is 240.462... square units.
