%N Number of ways to write 2*n+1 as p + q + r with 2*p + 4*q + 6*r a square, where p,q,r are odd primes.

%C 2-4-6 Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 6. In other words, any odd integer greater than 14 can be written as the sum of three odd primes p,q,r for which 2*p + 4*q + 6*r is an integer square.

%C This is stronger than the solved weak Goldbach conjecture (A068307), and it is motivated by the author's 1-3-5 conjecture in A271518.

%C We have verified a(n) > 0 for all n = 7..3*10^5.
