COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 1. Moreover, for any integer n > 4, we can write 2*n as p + 2^x + 5^y, where p is an odd prime, and x and y are positive integers.

This has been verified for n up to 10^10.

See also A303934 and A304081 for further refinements, and A303932 and A304034 for similar conjectures.

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 1 since 2*2 = 2 + 2^0 + 5^0 with 2 prime.

a(3) = 1 since 2*3 = 3 + 2^1 + 5^0 with 3 prime.

a(5616) = 2 since 2*5616 = 9059 + 2^11 + 5^3 = 10979 + 2^7 + 5^3 with 9059 and 10979 both prime.
