%N Number of composites removed in each step of the Sieve of Eratosthenes for 10^7.

%C The number of composites <= 10^7 for which the n-th prime is the least prime factor.

%C The number of multiples of the n-th prime <= 10^7 that do not have any prime < the n-th prime as a factor.

%C The greatest n for which the n-th prime is a multiple <= 10^7 without a prime factor < n-th prime = primepi(sqrt(10^7)).

%H Eric F. O'Brien, <a href="/A227155/b227155.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..446</a>

%F a(1) = 10^7 \ 2 - 1.

%F a(2) = 10^7 \ 3 - 10^7 \ 6 - 1.

%F a(3) = 10^7 \ 5 - 10^7 \ 10 - 10^7 \ 15 + 10^7 \ 30 - 1.

%e For n = 2, prime(n) = 3, a(n) = 1666666: 3 divides 10^7 3333333 times.

%e 6 is the common multiple of 2 and 3, thus 10^7 \ 6 multiples of 3 (1666666) have already been eliminated by a(1).

%e 3333333 less 1666666 = 1666667, less 1 because 3 itself is not eliminated.

%e Thus a(2) = 3333333 - 1666666 - 1 = 1666666.
