%e a(13) = 3 because:

%e p(13 + 1) + p(13 - 1) = 43 + 37 = 80;

%e p(13 + 2) + p(13 - 2) = 47 + 31 = 78;

%e p(13 + 5) + p(13 - 5) = 61 + 19 = 80;

%e p(13 + 6) + p(13 - 6) = 67 + 17 = 84;

%e p(13 + 7) + p(13 - 7) = 71 + 13 = 84;

%e p(13 + 8) + p(13 - 8) = 73 + 11 = 84.

%e p(13 + 12) + p(13 - 12) = 97 + 2 = 99.

%e The 3 distinct values of prime(n+k) + prime(n-k) that are each obtained in at least 2 ways are 80, 82 and 84.
