COMMENTS

This is a subsequence of A107003.
The corresponding values of p: 341, 561, 4371, 4681, 8481, 8911, 10261, 13741, 14491, 25761, 29341, 49141, 93961, 129921, 130561, 149281, 228241, 285541, 340561, 439291, 512461, 530881, 532171, 534061, 597871, 736291, 764491, 782341, 852841, 903631, 951481.
From the first 128 natural solutions of this equation ((24*p + 1)/5, where p is Fermat pseudoprime to base 2), 31 are primes (the ones from the sequence above), 51 are products (not necessary squarefree) of two prime factors and 41 are products of three prime factors; only 5 of them are products of four prime factors.
Conjecture: There is no absolute Fermat pseudoprime m for which n = (5*m  1)/24 is a natural number (checked for the first 300 Carmichael numbers; if true, then the formula is a criterion to separate pseudoprimes at least from a subset of primes, because there are 37 primes m from the first 300 primes for which n = (5*m  1)/24 is a natural number).
3380740301 is a counterexample to the conjecture.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 07 2014
