241, 428717761 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

1,1

COMMENTS

See comments for A057472. Examined in base 12, all n must be even and all primes must be 1-primes. For example, 241 is 181 in base 12.

The n<1000 that yield primes are 2, 8, 248. - T. D. Noe, Nov 16 2006

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..2.

FORMULA

a(n) = n-th number such that 2*11^k-1 that is prime for some k.

a(n) = 2*11^A120378(n)-1. [From R. J. Mathar, Mar 06 2010]

EXAMPLE

a(1)=241 since 2*11^2-1=241 is the first prime.

MAPLE

for w to 1 do for k from 1 to 2000 do n:=2*11^k-1; if isprime(n) then printf("%d, %d", k, n) fi od od;
