 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Such k always exists. There are infinitely many values of k such that A011371(n) + k + 1 does not divide 2^k * n!; i.e., prime q = A011371(n) + k + 1 > n. It is known that a(n) > 0 for all n > 5. See related comment in A281291. The values of a(A000040(n)) are 1, 0, 0, 4, 4, 6, 3, 6, 9, 5, 10, 6, 4, 7, 10, 9, 6, 10, 6, 5, 8, 8, 9, ...
