COMMENTS

n!!! is the triple factorial sometimes written n!3.

If taking absolute values: 1,2,5,8,13,26,29,31,41,43,44,46,56,59 would also be in this sequence.

a(38) > 50000.

EXAMPLE

68 is in the sequence because 68!!!-3^68=350834017732995704466119535768239 is prime.

MATHEMATICA

MultiFactorial[n_, k_] := If[n < 1, 1, If[n < k + 1, n, n*MultiFactorial[n - k, k]]];

Select[Range[0, 100], MultiFactorial[#, 3] - 3^# > 0 && PrimeQ[MultiFactorial[#, 3] - 3^#] &]
