A339928 Numbers k such that the removal of all terminating even digits from k! leaves a prime. 0
6, 7, 9, 10, 43, 138, 1068 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

1,1

COMMENTS

a(8) > 1500.

If only the terminating zeros are removed, 2 is the only number whose factorial becomes prime.

If one also removes 5s at the end, 7 is no longer in the sequence and no numbers below 1500 are added to the sequence.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..7.

EXAMPLE

43! = 60415263063373835637355132068513997507264512000000000. After removing all even digits at the end, we are left with 6041526306337383563735513206851399750726451, which is prime. So 43 is a term of this sequence.

27! = 10888869450418352160768000000. After removing all even digits at the end, we are left with 108888694504183521607, which is not prime. So 27 is not a term of this sequence.

PROG

(PARI) for(n=1, 1500, k=n!; while(!(k%2), k\=10; if(k==0, break)); if(isprime(k), print1(n, ", ")))

(Python)

from sympy import factorial, isprime

def ok(n):

    fn = factorial(n)

    while fn > 0 and fn%2 == 0: fn //= 10

    return fn > 0 and isprime(fn)

print(list(filter(ok, range(200)))) # Michael S. Branicky, Jun 07 2021
