        it will generate the negative value if we subtract 47 (the first prime after doubling the first term of the sequence) 36-31=5 5+37=42 42-41=1 1+43=44

          36-31=5

          44-(47)=-3

          Sure, this one was simple, but it begs a question:



          Would this sequence ever generate a negative value?
