 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS A proper prefix (or suffix) of a number m is one which is neither void, nor identical to m. Alternative definition: Slice the decimal expansion of the prime number a(n) in any way into two nonempty parts; then both parts represent a composite number. This sequence is a subset of A254750. Each member a(n) must start with one of the digits {4,6,8,9} and end with 9. Every proper prefix of each member a(n) is a member of A202260, and every proper suffix is a member of A254755. These numbers are rare and tend to become rarer with increasing n, but the sequence does not seem to terminate (for example, 4*10^28 + 9 is a member). LINKS Stanislav Sykora, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..20000 EXAMPLE 7 is not a member because its expansion cannot be sliced in two. The prime 4969 is a member because it is a prime and the slices (4, 969, 49, 69, 496, and 9) are all composites. PROG (PARI) isComposite(n) = (n>2)&&(!isprime(n)); slicesIntoComposites(n, b=10) = {my(k=b); if(n0, if(!isComposite(n\k)||!isComposite(n%k), return(0); ); k*=b); return(1); } isPrimeSlicingIntoComposites(n, b=10) = isprime(n) && slicesIntoComposites(n, b); CROSSREFS Cf.
