1a. Prime Conjecture

Hello All:

Can anyone prove this conjecture?

For all n>2 ;

for all i: 1<= i<= n exist j: n+1 <= j <= n^(3/2)

(1+pj)/(-1+pi) is integer.

pi is the ith prime number.

Sincerely:

Sebastian MartÃ­n Ruiz

Sebastian, this should be quite easy to prove for just about any subsequence of the positive integers.

Prove that it's true for the entire set of positive integers, then it would be trivial to show that it's
also true for the prime number subsequence.
