COMMENTS

Technically, the formula is undefined modulo 2# or 3#, but their values are listed as "0", since there are no 6's in the first differences of their reduced residue systems. For our purposes, by "6's", we mean n such that n,n+6 are relatively prime to the primorial modulus, while n+1,n+2,n+3,n+4,n+5 all share a factor (or factors) with p#. The values of this sequence are tied to actual distribution of sexy primes over N (conjecture).

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*product(p2)2*product(p3), where p runs over the primes greater than 3.


EXAMPLE

Modulo 5# (=30), there are (2*(52)2*(53))=2 occurrences where n,n+6 are relatively prime, but n+1,n+2,n+3,n+4,n+5 share a factor with 30; they are n=1,n=23(mod30). Modulo 7# (=210), there are (2*(72)*(52)2*(73)*(53))=3016=14 such occurrences.
