 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS All such numbers k are prime. Note that a(6) = 110503 corresponds to (36^110503 + 1)/37, which is only a probable prime with 171975 digits. The primes corresponding to the terms of this sequence have 1 as their last digit and an even number as their next-to-last digit. - Iain Fox, Dec 08 2017 LINKS J.
